News / BIRN and IPI launch a call for training Kosovo journalists
The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network – BIRN – and the International Press Institute (IPI) have opened a call for applications for a third two-day training course on fact-checking and tackling disinformation as part of the EU-funded project ‘Solidifying the Resilience of Kosovo’s Current and Future Journalists’.
The first edition organised back in December 2020, gathered 36 participants, including 24 journalists and six students of journalism. The training sessions were led by representatives from two independent fact-checking organisations – Maldita.es (Spain) and Teyit.org (Turkey). The second, which took place in March 2021, included trainers from Africa Check – the first independent fact-checking organisation in Africa.
This time round, the programme will include experienced trainers such Claus Hesseling, a German journalist and author, Kostas Zafeiropoulos, a co-founder of the non-profit Mediterranean Institute for Investigative Reporting (MIIR), UK-based investigative journalist, Darren Loucaides, and Sarah Hurtes whose work has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Vice and Thomson Reuters.
