About Chevening South Asia Journalism Fellowship (SAJP)
Hosted by the University of Westminster

The Chevening South Asia Journalism Fellowship (SAJP) is aimed at mid-career journalists from South Asian countries including Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives.

 

The fellowship is hosted by the University of Westminster.

 

This fellowship is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office.

 

Course/programme structure

 

Fellows will undertake a bespoke 8-week fellowship titled ‘Good Governance in a Changing World: the Media, Politics and Society’. The programme explores the different ways in which the media play a part in holding democratic processes to account, including government, the civil service and security, as well as the broader political system in both the South Asia region and the UK.

 

During this programme, fellows will explore the range of approaches taken by the UK and the South Asia region, and then use that knowledge to direct discussions that tackle the big issues challenging the field. Fellows will be challenged to discuss evidence-based context for key policy debates, understand international positions (including appreciation of UK approaches), supply practical experience, and encourage dialogue on key issues.

 

The curriculum focuses on the ways in which the media are held responsible, and the wider context within which political institutions operate. The ethics of reporting are at the heart of all debates.

 

Fellows will participate in eight intensive weeks of lectures, visits, and discussions that introduce them to key UK academics, media, and political figures in the field. They will also spend time meeting their peers in some of the UK’s top media organisations, as well as running a symposium on a topic of their choice in the final week.
