Call for Applications: 10th ASEF Journalists’ Colloquium

ASEF is pleased to invite practicing journalists from ASEM countries who are experienced in covering crises and disasters to apply for the 10th ASEF Journalists’ Colloquium on Crisis Reporting: the Role of Asian and European Media.

Whether it is a public health crisis such as the E. coli outbreak (2011) in Germany, or an environmental disaster like the cyclone Haiyan (2013) in the Philippines, or some of the recent terror attacks – both Asian as well as European media face many common challenges. This colloquium will enable practicing journalists from ASEM countries to share such challenges and best practices in dealing with those challenges during crisis reporting from their respective regional perspectives. 

The recommendations/highlights from the colloquium will be published as ASEF Media Handbook, which will be a ready reference for Asian and European journalists as well as for research and civil society organisations working in the field.

The Colloquium will be held from 4-6 November 2015 in Luxembourg on the sidelines of the 12th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting. Travel subsidies and other conference-related expenses will be provided.

More information and submission guidelines can be found under the 
Call for Applications. A PDF with more information on the application can be found here.

Deadline for applications is on Sunday, 17 May 2015, 18:00 (Singapore time: GMT+8).
