CFOM was fortunate enough to host the UNESCO Chair team Bernardo Diaz and Ruth de Frutos in Sheffield last week, marking a closer UNESCO Chair collaboration between the University of Malaga and the University of Sheffield.

In a convivial atmosphere (our photo testifies to this) we spent an exciting and fruitful week together! During this week the UNESCO Chair team in Malaga and Sheffield planned activities for further collaboration.

More specifically, there will be a joint research project that investigates the experiential accounts of female Latin American journalists that are forced to work in exile. We will also draw from their expertise to test and further develop the civil norms approach developed by Harrison and Pukallus. In November we will get together to celebrate the award of the International Press Freedom Prize – a prize that was created by the Malaga UNESCO Chair and that has been running for a number of years. We are also preparing for exciting activities to celebrate the Day to End Impunity 2019 and the International Radio Day 2020 – so stay tuned and watch this space!
