Recently bloggers and journalists in Palestine launched a New Media training organization with the goal of developing a new generation of journalists without borders in Palestine.
The creation of the new non-profit “Journalism Without Borders” (translated from Arabic) was announced during a ceremony held in Hebron, Palestine, on November 21. The new body plans to start its operations in January 2007.
The goals of the organization are to create a new generation of skilled journalists, to monitor press freedom violations, to advocate the reform of Palestinian media laws, to improve the journalist-citizen relationship and to organize journalist exchange programs.
