Organised by the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination
Commission, the workshop was conducted in partnership with the United Nations
Human Rights and the Media Industry Development Authority of Fiji (MIDA).
Director of Human Rights, Ashwin Raj said the workshop
provided a platform for the media to know more about reporting on cases
involving children and other aspects of child rights.
Members of the media also learned about ethical reporting on
child protection issues and understanding a child in terms of how violence,
sexual abuse and trauma impacted them.
The two day workshop ends tomorrow.
