Refugee Journalism Project
The Refugee Journalism Project supports refugee and exiled journalists to re-start their careers in the UK. These journalists arrive in the UK with an impressive range of skills – many have been editors, correspondents and producers in their own countries – but they face significant barriers when they attempt to continue their journalism. During the yearlong project, participants will be offered a range of workshops, mentoring and placements. The core aims are to help refugee journalists become better connected within the UK industry; increase their confidence and update their journalistic skills; and encourage more of their voices within the media to help address the mainstream bias on migrant issues. The project is a collaboration between the London College of Communication and the Migrants Resource Centre. The work is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
