Ratiu Forum Journalism Workshop

Two year program

A two year program of quarterly workshops to be held between 2020 and 2022 in Turda, Transylvania at the Ratiu Democracy Centre

International relations

The workshops are based on a strategy devised by the LSE Ideas (International Relations) department at the London School of Economics based on the analysis of a pilot workshop held in Turda in November 2019 and the requests of the 23 journalists who attended.

Professional support

The workshop was led by John Lloyd, co-founder of The Reuters Institute for Journalism Oxford and contributing editor to the Financial Times. The Workshop program seeks to address especially regional concerns facing journalists in Romania. The role of the Ratiu Centre for Democracy is to oversee the implementation of the workshops and the necessary administration. In addition to the workshops the project will establish an Online Journalism / Media Hub to connect young Romanian Journalists together and with journalists abroad.
