AIPIM holds workshop on Ethical Challenges
The Macau Portuguese and English Press Association (AIPIM) held a Workshop on Ethical Challenges for Journalists on November 25, at Rui Cunha Foundation, between 10am and 1pm. It was the first instalment of the newly launched AIPIM TRAINING SERIES.
A total of 28 AIPIM members joined a lively and instructive session hosted by Eric Wishart, head of Agence France-Press’s Special Projects and author of the agency’s new code of ethics. It was a truly inspiring and compelling session, which focused on some of the fundamentals of our work as journalists.
Eric Wishart shared his expertise and the rationale behind drafting AFP’s code of ethics before delving into controversial test cases, which prompted a lively debate. AIPIM would like to express its deepest gratitude to Eric Wishart and to those who joined the session.
The next round of the AIPIM TRAINING SERIES will be held on December 9 (10am/1pm;3pm-6m) also at Rui Cunha Foundation. Portuguese scholar, educator and journalist Joaquim Fidalgo will be joining us for a session also focused on journalism ethics.
