Opportunities for journalists in exile in Germany

Opportunities for journalists in exile in Germany

Together with exiled media professionals, we want to explore new opportunities to facilitate professional activities in Germany. ECPMF can arrange and organise counselling and professional training for journalists who had to leave their country because they experienced repression or persecution.

  • Professional pathways:
    Tailored to prior knowledge and interests, we can organise and facilitate journalistic training sessions and workshops, as well as language courses and financially support internships in media outlets.
  • Legal support:
    We can arrange and finance legal consultations, including asylum, labour and media law.
  • Psychological support:
    We can support the search for appropriate psychological support and cover the cost of counselling.

Application

Get in touch with us:

  1. Please send an email to support@ecpmf.eu or a Signal message to +4917643839637 and describe your current situation and the type of support needed.
  2. You will receive a questionnaire to fill out in English or German.

Please prepare the following documents and information:

  • your CV
  • evidence of journalistic work; press card(s)
  • contact details of at least two reference persons

We will then decide and agree together, if and how ECPMF can support you.

Please note: This project is financed through public means. Therefore, we will not be able to financially support all requests received.

Preliminary project end: 31 March 2022

Since the start of the project in September 2019, ECPMF has worked with various journalists and media workers living in exile in order to support them on their professional path in Germany.
