Thomson Reuters Foundation Reporting Workshop on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery 2019

Thomson Reuters, modern slavery



Applications for the Thomson Reuters Foundation Reporting on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery 2019 are now open. This one-week Reporting on Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery in Nigeria is a unique chance for journalists in West Africa to gain practical skills and knowledge and work on your story ideas with guidance from experienced Thomson Reuters Foundation journalists and subject experts from reputed anti-trafficking charities.

The workshop offers a combination of specialist expertise and hands-on training, with an emphasis on producing high-impact stories for widespread dissemination. As well as coming away with a deep understanding of the scale, nature and causes of the problem, participants will learn about efforts to set global standards for combating modern slavery, including fundamental conventions, international instruments and a new, legally binding protocol that requires countries to take real action.

They will discuss the role of media in raising awareness, reducing vulnerability and holding to account governments, law enforcement and businesses. Attendees will look at innovative approaches to fighting trafficking and forced labour and reporting on migration and scrutinise the quest for integrated policy responses across borders.

A major focus will be on the ethics of reporting slavery, from how to interact sensitively with traumatised survivors to getting past journalists’ own preconceived notions and stereotypes. They will cover safety issues, particularly when it comes to dealing with sources and reporting on organised crime.

This is an opportunity to pick the brains of reporters who have done extraordinary investigative work or ground-breaking reportage that has changed policy, provoked public outcry or brought traffickers to justice.

  21. Several trends are apparent in college students’ other drug use.
    For instance, MTF reports a significant increase in the late
    1990s in the annual use of ecstasy (MDMA) among college students, which then dropped off and has seemed to increase
    modestly in recent years. Other “club drugs,” including
    gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), rohypnol, and ketamine
    also gained popularity in their use as predatory drugs during that time.
    College students increasingly use prescription drugs for nonmedical purposes, with the use of narcotics other than heroin (e.g., OxyContin, Vicodin) steadily increasing since 1994 and then leveling off after 2002.
    As a counterpoint to these increases, marijuana use among college
    students has remained fairly steady since 2000, decreasing only modestly
    since 2003. comprar viagra online
