The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Hosts the Third SNF-Funded CSIS Practicum in Modern Journalism

Oct 05, 2018
The week of August 27th, 2018, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted the third CSIS Practicum in Modern Journalism: Reporting on International Affairs. The program is exclusively supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

The CSIS Practicum in Modern Journalism connects rising journalists with policy experts and multimedia producers to tell pressing stories from around the globe. Each year, four universities are invited to bring a select group of students to Washington, D.C. to complete an intensive week of workshops that allow them to gain a meaningful understanding of global issues and the nuances of international reporting in an evolving media landscape.

Ten undergraduate students and one faculty member from Texas Christian University participated in August’s Practicum, which focused on “Digital Warfare: Russia’s Attacks on Democracy”.

For the first time this year, Greek students from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki will participate in the CSIS Practicum that will take place in December 2018, with the SNF’s support.

CSIS was established in Washington, D.C. over 50 years ago as a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to providing strategic insights and policy solutions to help decision makers chart a course toward a better world. The SNF has collaborated with CSIS on various projects since 1998, including the implementation of discussion series and concept papers, among others.
