Good debate this morning
I'm pleased with the networking and level of the break-out sessions. One of the first times so many NGO's and broadcasters have got together. Aidian White of the IFJ (International Federation for Journalists) in Brussels makes a point that its pointless training journalists in developing countries unless something is done about the level of safety - and also that there is a career path for those who go into the profession. Wage levels in many countries means jobs are not paying anything like what's needed to keep media independent.
