Folha and UNHCR organize new workshop on Refugee Guidelines – 07/04/2021 – Worldwide

On Thursday (8), Folha and the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) will again promote an online workshop on journalistic guidelines for refugees.

The first workshop organized by the two institutions on this theme took place in the last month of February. This time, the event, always free, is mainly aimed at journalists and communication students working in the northern region of the country. It starts at 6 p.m. (Brasilia time), with limited places.

The voluntary promoter of information to Venezuelans Mariluz Mariano, originally from the Warao ethnic group, participates; communications advisor for the Association of Volunteers for International Service – Brazil (ASVI) Camila Geraldo; Folha correspondent in Manaus, Fabiano Maisonnave; and UNHCR spokesperson in Brazil, Luiz Fernando Godinho.

During the workshop, suggested guidelines for forced displacement will be presented. Participants will also discuss the challenges and care to bring up the topic.

Interested parties should apply through an online form.

The workshop is part of the celebrations for the newspaper’s centenary (February 19, 2021) and UNHCR’s 70th anniversary (completed December 14, 2020).

Also the result of Folha’s partnership with UNHCR, the exhibition “Who’s telling this story: refugee journalists or refugee journalists?”, At the Immigration Museum, is temporarily closed due to restrictions determined by the São Paulo government.

The exhibit is based on the Refugee Journalists series, published by the newspaper in October 2020.
