Training of trainers


Media Academy Iraq (MAI) is conducting a three-day workshop on the basics of election monitoring in the southeastern Iraqi city of Amarah.


The workshop analyses the importance of monitoring of media institutions during the campaign period, while exploring the right methods to achieve this.


The second day will look in more detail at how to monitor individual media outlets: Radio stations, TV channels, online and print newspapers and agencies.


The participants will then split into groups for practical monitoring exercises, before presenting their results for feedback from other groups.


Finally, a discussion on media monitoring will complete the session.
