This summer you can join working journalists and journalism students for a unique one-week seminar in Prague in the Czech Republic. The European Journalism Institute (EJI) will be held from July 11 to 18, 2009 in conjunction with the three-week American Institute on Political and Economic Systems (AIPES) program, also sponsored by The Fund for American Studies (TFAS).
Institute participants gather to study the basic structure and functions of market economies in the context of such fundamental issues as competition, the role of government in the economy, environmental regulation, globalization, the functions of the price system, health and welfare economics and international trade. Participants will also discuss strategies to accurately report news stories dealing with business, the economy, and fiscal policies.
Instructors and guest lecturers are drawn from the United States and Europe.
Lecturers include economics and public policy experts, journalists who cover business and finance, and government and corporate leaders. Those selected to attend the EJI will receive a generous scholarship during their attendance.
Deadline for applications: May 15, 2009
