Different perspectives—from the point of view of the refugees themselves and the host country, Jordan—will be examined.

International journalists’ academies, including cross-border participation, have proven to be an excellent tool for cultural and religious exchange and the promotion of press freedom. The Konrad Adenauer Foundation has been organizing such events through its offices across the world for some time.

A successful Journalists’ Academy was already conducted by KAS Jordan Office last year. This year, a Young Journalists’ Academy will take place in Amman between the 11th and the 15th of February 2018, in which eight Jordanian and Syrian journalists will team up to conduct research about current social issues.

The participants will plan their topics, conduct research and interview partners in intercultural teams of two. Each journalist will write her or his own article about their findings which will be published in a multimedia-based, bilingual blog.
