BIRN Romania is calling on journalists from three countries in the Black Sea region – Bulgaria, Moldova and Romania – to apply to attend a training seminar from December 12-14 in Bucharest.

Up to eight journalists will be selected to take part.

The seminar, entitled “Reporting Security in the Black Sea Area”, aims to raise awareness of regional security issues, by promoting best practices in terms of reporting on issues such as energy, military, migration, reconciliation.

The journalists will be trained with the aim of creating an informal, professional network of journalists interested in covering security issues. Following the training, the participants will be expected to produce in-depth news analysis pieces related to regional security issues. A special media package containing all the analyses will be published by BIRN (

The project is being funded by the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation. Meetings and lectures will be held in English.
The organisers will cover travel and accommodation costs.
