NAWA Newsroom Team


In 2021, the Newsroom participants took part in a training programme run by the Check Global NAWA team, and then worked with Skeyes Media: Centre for Media and Cultural Freedom on a misinformation project. The cohort of journalism students from Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Palestine and Egypt first completed a training programme covering media analysis and monitoring, as well as verification skills relating to COVID misinformation. They learned to collect and rank content from media outlets in each country, to create the first ever open-access, Arabic ‘Credibility Index’. The students then focused on fact-checking COVID misinformation in influential media outlets, and five of the participants went on to work with Skeyes, where they were mentored and provided with editorial support, working with the partner to create a regional study and report from their data.
