The Africa-China Reporting Project, in collaboration with the China Global South Project, held a capacity building informative training workshop for journalists, researchers and media professionals on China 101: Knowledge Building for African journalists, 20 March 2023.
The workshop was hosted by Eric Olander, co-founder and editor in chief of The China-Global South Project and podcast, online partner of the Africa-China Reporting Project. Eric was joined by one of the world’s leading China observers, Kaiser Kuo, co-founder of the popular Sinica Podcast and editor-at-large of The China Project.
Reporting on China is notably challenging, even for the most experienced journalist who's spent years living there and speaks the language. So, it's not surprising that reporters in Africa who've had limited exposure to the country often struggle to cover China-related news.
This special podcast episode produced in conjunction with the Africa-China Reporting Project (ACRP) at Wits University in Johannesburg, presents Eric Olander and Kaiser Kuo in discussion of how African journalists can advance their reporting on China.
The interview with Kaiser was recorded during a live online workshop hosted by ACRP Project Coordinator Bongiwe Tutu that included questions from African journalists who participated in the event.
