Migration dynamics in North Africa continues to be characterized by complex mixed migratory flows. Libya is a source, transit and destination country for West and Sub-Saharan Africa. In light of the human tragedies faced by thousands of migrants in the Mediterranean, migration is increasingly at the center of the public debate and media discourse. Media reporting of migration is often complicated by stereotypes and misinformation, which risk leading to prejudices and misconceptions of migrant populations.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is seeking applicants for a training on reporting on migration in Libya. The training aims to improve the reporting skills of young journalists, bloggers, students and others who contribute to the migration discourse in Libya. It also seeks to establish a network of highly skilled migration reporters. The long-term goal of the training is to contribute to a more nuanced and human rights based media coverage of migration topics in Libya.
