Global Journalism

About this project

The lecture "Media in a European and Global Context" connects journalism students of the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz with journalists from all over the world since the summer semester 2020. The result is a network that pursues two goals: First, to open the students' eyes to a world in which freedom of expression is a value that is worth standing up for. And secondly, to create contacts that make it possible to report from and about countries all over the world in one's own professional work together with the colleagues on location, to compensate one's own lacking knowledge with their expertise, and to inform and reflect on the world.

During this exercise biographies - from German journalism students on journalists all over the world - and joint reports have been created. This website documents this work and at the same time serves as a platform for future collaboration.
