Chevening South Asia Journalism Programme Fellowship

Chevening South Asia Journalism Programme Fellowship

Chevening South Asia Journalism Programme Fellowship

The Chevening South Asia Journalism Programme Fellowship is aimed at mid-career journalists from South Asian countries including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh.


The programme is funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and offers an opportunity to explore the range of approaches taken by the UK and the South Asian region, and then use that knowledge to direct discussions that tackle the big issues challenging the field.


It provides an informed and evidence-based context to key policy debates and mutual understanding of international positions (including an appreciation of UK approaches), supply practical experience, and encourage dialogue on the key issues.


About Chevening South Asia Journalism Programme Fellowship


Fellows will undertake a bespoke fellowship programme titled ‘Good Governance in a Changing World: the Media, Politics and Society’. It 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.


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.


The next fellowship commences in March 2019 and is delivered at the University of Westminster.
