Goals and requirements
Reporting on religions should be free of prejudice and sensitive to potential conflict areas. To this end, we strengthen journalistic skills and professional standards. This results in authoritative and mediating coverage of interreligious dialogue that promotes tolerance and peace. All this is made possible through direct personal experience and through encounters and exchange with experts and stakeholders.
Our foundation is aimed at younger national and international journalists from different media. A total of 24 participants (12 people per course) will be selected. The following formula will be used as a basis: 50 percent will be international journalists. In total, at least one third of the group should belong to different religions and one third should be women.
Participants publish at least one journalistic article in a national or international media outlet within twelve months after the end of the journalism course.
An expert jury will select the national participants.
