South Asia Journalism Fellowship (SAJP) University of Westminster is going to offer multiple positions for the scholarship. The Chevening South Asia Journalism Fellowship (SAJP) is designed for journalists in their mid-career from South Asian nations such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives. The University of Westminster is hosting the fellowship. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the United Kingdom is funding this scholarship.
Fellows will participate in an individualized 8-week fellowship on “Good Governance in a Changing World: Media, Politics, and Society.” The program examines the many roles played by the media in holding democratic systems, such as government, the civil service, and security, as well as the larger political system, to account in both the South Asian area and the United Kingdom.
Fellows will examine the diversity of methods adopted by the UK and the South Asia area during this program, and then use that knowledge to guide debates on the major problems confronting the field. Fellows will be expected to explore the evidence-based context for important policy debates, comprehend international viewpoints (including an understanding of UK methods), provide practical experience, and promote conversation on critical problems. The curriculum focuses on how the media is held accountable as well as the larger environment in which political institutions operate. All disputes revolve around the ethics of reporting. Fellows will be exposed to important UK academics, media, and political players in the area over the course of eight weeks of lectures, visits, and debates.
