IREX Europe is happy to announce that its journalism manual, developed in close partnership with Alternative Media who are based in Tunisia, is now available in French and Arabic. The manual has been developed by French experts Jocelyn Grange and Jean-Marie Coat along with Tunisian experts Nizar Ben Hassen and Manel Gharbi with the support of the European Union, the US Embassy in Tunisia and the French Development Agency.

This journalism manual has been developed to provide a tool for community radios, and also trained trainers who now have the tools to support community radios in producing high quality journalism and programmes. The manual covers the whole spectrum of running and working in a community radio, providing management guidance, best practice in human resources management, and guidance for journalists and radio presenters. The manual is in an easy-to-use factsheet format.

Key topics are:

  • How to be a local community media
  • How to do local community-based journalism
  • How to be a presenter in a local radio
