UNDP, with the support of the Swedish government, launches “Getting the Story – Reporting Business and Human Rights: A handbook for journalists, communicators, and campaigners” on 30 September.
The Swedish Embassy in Hanoi states that business and human rights issues cover all types of news, from fashion to politics to the environment. These stories are often complex and require a unique set of skills to identify, pitch and investigate, but they also have the power to bring critical issues to the public and political agenda.
It is the first guide published by UNDP for reporting on business and human rights. TThe handbook – written by a journalist, with journalists, for journalists – is designed as a tool to help everyone, from journalists, campaigners and activists to develop their own stories to those who conduct media and communication training, to better communicate business and human rights.
More about the launch event:
In this 90-minute session, you will hear stories from journalists with experience in reporting on business and human rights and learn how to integrate business and human rights into their work. The publication Reporting Business and Human Rights: A handbook for journalists, communicators and campaigners will also be introduced during the event.
