For the 2020 edition, we are looking for inspiration and new ideas to foster the motivation and abilities to think critically about social questions.  To counteract the fact that practice and research are often two worlds apart, we invite applications in two categories:

  • Embedded practices that support critical thinking about social questions
  • Scholarly but practice-oriented work that furthers our understanding of practices, pedagogies, curricula or projects that foster critical thinking, and the conditions in which education for critical thinking can thrive

The call is open to a broad variety of practices implemented in institutional and non-institutional spaces by teachers, scholars, students, educators, youth workers, artists, civil society organizations, citizen groups etc. This includes formal, non-formal and community-based education for youth as well as adults.

Further information about the criteria and the procedure can be found here.

If you would like to apply, please read the Call for Applications first and then download and fill in the Application Form. Both can be found on our website.

Please do not hesitate to contact Marjolein Delvou if you have any queries: Marjolein [dot] delvou [at] evensfoundation [dot] be

We would like to announce the publication of the book "Accreditation and Assessment of Journalism Education in Europe. Quality Evaluation and Stakeholder Influence. Baden-Baden: Nomos.
by Eva Nowak from our member institution Jade Hochschule.

How is journalism education in Europe accredited and assessed? State organisations and the media industry influence the objectives, content and structures of such education and trainings through their accreditation. They set quality standards and, at the same time, interfere with the autonomy of journalism education. Through studies of twelve countries, this volume shows how accreditation influences journalism education in Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

A second part of the book provides a comparative analysis of these studies including an overview on accreditation in higher education in Europe and the European Higher Education Area, EHEA. Another chapter deals with the ACEJMC’s more than seventy years of experience in journalism studies accreditation in the USA.

The volume contains contributions by Maarit Jaakkola, Pascal Guénée, Tina Tsomaia, Ana Keshelashvili, Andrea Czepek, Tibor Mester, Annamária Torbó, Catherine Shanahan, Nico Drok, George Prundaru, Elena Vartanova, Maria Lukina, Carlos Barrera, Manuel Martín Algarra, Guido Keel, Deborah Wilson David, Joe Foote and Eva Nowak.

The editor, Eva Nowak, is a professor of journalism at Jade Hochschule in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Her research focuses on journalism education and media freedom.

The Ethical Journalism Network has worked with the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) to develop an online resource for journalists reporting on migration.
The toolkit was launched to mark World Refugee Day:
