“Media, Migrants and Refugees” – Media Workshop with Nick Thorpe (BBC Correspondent for Central Europe)

First of all, congratulations on the interest you have shown in the Media Workshop that UNHCR Romania and the West University of Timisoara are organizing. Your initiative confirms that media professionals in Romania are keen on sharing their skills and acquiring new ones on topics that seem to present more and more interest to the public.

Due to this, UNHCR and West University of Timisoara considered that is vital to give media professionals the opportunity to access first-hand information on refugee-related issues, as well as an open dialogue with world-renowned journalist and writer Nick Thorpe, the facilitator of the workshop.

About Nick Thorpe:

He was born by the River Medway in Upnor, Kent in February 1960. After youthful years spent mostly on the road, in Europe and in Africa, he settled on the shores of the River Danube in Budapest in February 1986. He was the first western reporter to be based full time here. He has been living in central Europe ever since, mostly in Hungary, but with spells in Prague, the Balkans, and the Middle East. He has worked as regional correspondent for the BBC, the Independent, UPI, the Guardian and the Observer. Since 1996 He has been Central Europe correspondent for the BBC. His first book: ’89 The Unfinished Revolution – Power and Powerlessness in Eastern Europe’ was published by Reportage Press in November 2009. He is also the co-director, with his wife Andrea, of two documentary films, and one short feature (The Fairy Island, 1993; Vigilance, 1997; The Vineleaf and the Rose, 2002)
