During this pandemic, access to accurate, trusted information can literally mean life or death.

Increasingly confined to our homes, we need journalists more than ever to bring us the news, and yet they face increasing challenges: from restrictions to their movements and threats to security to accusations of “fake news”.

Corinne Perkins, Reuters Pictures’ North American Editor and Gaetan Vannay, journalist, security expert and strong believer in “boots on the ground” reporting talk to us about the state of journalism and photojournalism today: the challenges faced and why we need journalists more than ever.

The event organised by the Media & Photography Department, Webster University Geneva, will honour the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.

Event: Advocacy – opportunities and limits in a multilateral system; 6 February 2020

06 February 2020, 17:30 – 19:00 at the Graduate Institute

The lack of concrete results of recent multilateral actions raises questions about the effectiveness of advocacy and public initiatives.

At the same time, an effective action at the international level is crucial to address the rising interconnected challenges our times are witnessing. Can advocacy be a solution to foster action by governments and international actors? What are the limits?

During this conference, you will understand how advocacy can help advance a cause at the international level, and you will think critically about its limits.

Join us to tackle those points and analyse the role of advocacy in two recent examples: COP 25 and the draft European Union bill on multinational companies’ tax transparency.

Event: Integrating communications in evaluation – 11h00 – 30 January 2020 ILO, Geneva

For those communicators interested in evaluation… the Evaluation Office of the International Labour Organization invites you to a presentation by Glenn O’Neil (co-founder of GCN).  The topic of Dr O’Neil’s presentation will be Integrating communications in evaluation. Communications is an important aspect of evaluation; it has been said that without communications, evaluation would not be possible.

Evaluation commissioners and evaluators are already communicating – but is communications being used optimally to support the evaluation process? In this presentation, Dr O’Neil will challenge the assumptions of how communications “works” for evaluations and propose solutions based on his experience as both a communicator and evaluator, backed up by communication practice and theory.

Dr O’Neil is founder of Owl RE, evaluation and research consultancy, Geneva. Since 15 years, he has led over 100 evaluations and reviews for some 40 organizations, including UN agencies, NGOs, foundations and governments. Dr O’Neil was previously a professional communicator in the non-profit sector and has produced his own guide on Integrating Communications in the Evaluation Process (pdf).

The event will take place from 11:00-12:00 on Thursday 30 January in the ILO Library on R2 (main floor). After the presentation, there will be a networking lunch (at your own expense) in the ILO cafeteria.

No need to register – please come to the ILO reception at 10:50 and ask for Craig Russon of the ILO Evaluation Office.
