BIRN BiH to hold media and war crimes training in Uganda

BIRN BiH is to extend its successful training model for journalists reporting war crimes issues to Uganda.

BIRN Justice Africa project will mentor Ugandan journalists reporting the International Criminal Court, ICC. 

The one-week intensive course will see BIRN's unique approach to training court reporters in the Balkans adapted to Ugandan media's and ICC's needs. 

The training in Uganda is the first time BIRN has transferred the experiences of Balkan journalists reporting on war crimes issues to colleagues dealing with similar issues in other post-conflict countries.

The first stage of BIRN Justice Africa is being supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, War Crimes Office in London and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
