The Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) is pleased to launch its new and revamped journalism training “Reporting on Human Trafficking and Labour Exploitation– a Solutions Approach”.

The 5-day online training led by their expert journalist will provide a deep dive into the complex topic. The programme will train participants to produce engaging and impactful reporting through solutions journalism, data visualization, and connect them to experts in the field working against these issues.

TRF’s new training curriculum offers the newest and most relevant topics in India’s human trafficking and labour exploitation. The training will take a solutions journalism approach to provide a new method to break down and report on this complex topic.

Participants will learn about the inter-related causes of human trafficking and labour exploitation and understand the role of big-business and problematic supply chains. They will hear directly from and network with experts in the field working on solutions both at the policy level and those working closely with victims.

There will be discussions on the ethics, risks, and legal dangers of reporting on this sensitive issue and training on how to interact sensitively with traumatised survivors.
