Tripoli, 8 March 2015:
Thirty Libyan journalists living in Tunisia have just started a nine-week programme at the British Council . . .[restrict]in Tunis to build their English-language speaking and writing skills.
The course has been set up by the UNESCO Libya office in partnership with the British Council. It is being funded by the Swedish government and is part of UNESCO’s efforts to reinforce the capacity of Libyan media to make a positive contribution to reconciliation in Libya. It also seeks to promote “conflict-sensitive” reporting.
According to UNESCO, the initiative came in response to a request by Libyan journalists based in Tunis who felt limited in their ability to express themselves effectively during meetings and workshops. The journalists also said they hoped to better understand and source what foreign media are saying about the situation in Libya. [/restrict]
