AMMAN (ILO News) - The International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) have launched a set of guidelines for ethical reporting on labour market issues in the Arab region on Saturday 4th December 2021 at the Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) conference, the ARIJ Annual Forum 2021.
The guidelines were developed in consultation with a number of experienced Arab journalists and aim to provide support to journalists at all levels who wish to cover the world of work in a fair and equitable manner.
The guidelines were developed as part of the ILO SSTC Journalism Fellowship for Arab States, implemented through a partnership between the ILO and the EJN. The Fellowship gathers a number of journalists from key Arab media outlets, with the aim of promoting a more robust, comprehensive and human-centred approach to reporting on labour-market issues in Arab states, and foster cooperation among journalists within the region and beyond.
The guidelines, available in both Arabic and English, were launched at a panel event at the ARIJ Annual Forum entitled “Ethics in Reporting on Labour Market Issues Hosted by EJN & ILO”.
