Journalists: apply for three-day course on children and the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Amman, Jordan

Published August 15, 2018

Recent conflicts in Syria and Iraq have created the largest refugee crisis since World War II. This ongoing upheaval presents a major challenge to reporters in the region and to the global press corps – including how to cover the crucial impact of war, violence, and displacement on vast numbers of babies and toddlers.

Are you a journalist interested in learning more about the consequences of the refugee crisis for young children’s brain development, emotional and cognitive growth, academic potential, and economic trajectory, as well as the policies that promote resilience and growth in the face of violence, stress and upheaval? Apply for the Dart Center’s three-day journalism training workshop with a special focus on the Syrian refugee crisis and response, which runs from January 20-23 at the Columbia Global Center in Amman, Jordan.

The application deadline is October 1, 2018. Read further details, including how to apply, here.
