International Center for Journalism
The International Center for Journalism was part of the Institute for Journalism and Communication Studies at the Free University of Berlin from 1995 to 2019. It has contributed significantly to the amalgamation of theoretical and practical training in journalism. In addition, the international exchange, especially with Russia and Eastern European countries, was the focus of the IYC.
In 1995, the then existing further training for journalists with the “European Journalism Fellowship Program” (scholarships for predominantly Western European journalists for a project stay in Berlin) and the program “Journalists from Russia”(scholarships for young journalists: inside for a six-month residency program) united under the umbrella of the IJK (cf. also Wersig/Neveling in: Kubicki, K. (2013). Gesellschaftswissenschaften an der Freien Universität Berlin: Erziehungswissenschaft, Psychologie, Hochschuldidaktik, Politikwissenschaft, Forschungsverbund SED-Staat, Kommunikationswissenschaften, Soziologie und Tourismus (Vol. 6). V&R unipress GmbH).
In 2019 the IJK was dissolved in favor of a realignment as the Center for Media and Information Literacy (CeMIL). The European Journalism Fellowships program continues under the umbrella of CeMIL, as do other initiatives for further training and exchange with international journalists.
