Journalists, exile and crisis areas

What challenges do female journalists face when reporting from exile and crisis areas? 17 journalists discussed this at a multi-day workshop organized by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ).

The participants came from Burundi, Tunisia and Germany. From their own experience, they reported on their experiences as journalists, but also on the consequences that the corona pandemic has had on them as women in their field of work. Other key questions were human rights and sexism. Restricted or even missing freedom of the press and freedom of expression was a very specific challenge that was a topic throughout the workshop. Some of the participants found themselves in similar situations.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop took place digitally. Despite the resulting restrictions, the journalists were able to network with each other, which enabled a further exchange of experiences. It quickly became clear during the workshop that there is a need for this.

FEMMES JOURNALISTES, EXIL ET ZONES DE CRISES

QUELS SONT LES DÉFIS AUXQUELS LES FEMMES JOURNALISTES SONT CONFRONTÉES LORSQU’ELLES FONT DES REPORTAGES DANS LES ZONES DE CRISES ET EN EXIL? DIX SEPT FEMMES JOURNALISTES ONT ÉCHANGÉ LEURS POINTS DE VUE SUR CES QUESTIONS LORS D’UN ATELIER ORGANISÉ PENDANT PLUSIEURS JOURS PAR LA FONDATION “DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG” (SEZ).

Les participants étaient de Burundi, de la Tunisie and de l’Allemagne. Elles ont fait part de leurs expériences de journalistes ainsi que l’impact des conséquences de la pandémie de Covid-19 qui les ont influencées en tant que femmes dans leur domaine de travail. Notons que les droits de l'homme et le sexisme étaient d'autres questions centrales. En outside, the freedom of the press and the freedom of opinion restreintes, voire inexistantes, ont constitué aussi a défi très concrete tout au long de l'atelier. Certain participants are reflected in the corresponding situations.

Due to the pandemic of Covid-19, the studio is now in the numerical form. In the end of the restrictions imposed, the journalists are on the same page when they come back, which allows them to change their experiences and enrich them. Il est à souligner que la nécessité de ce project est pertinente, cela était bien évident au cours des ateliers.
