The Prague Security Studies Institute prepared a course for students of journalism and journalists at the start of their career. The main aim of the project was to create a deeper understanding about foreign and security policy-related issues among young and aspiring Czech journalists; introduce the practical experience of journalists from the UK to the Czech environment; and foster contacts between Czech and UK media professionals.
The selected participants had the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops led by prominent UK journalists. Under their guidance, participants produced newspaper articles on relevant security/foreign policy issues. The most successful articles were published in various media outlets.
The project was supported by the British Embassy in the Czech Republic.
