OU Journalism Students: Global Spotlight

Covering the World from Athens

Scripps journalism students who took our Foreign Correspondence course this winter have produced a total of 34 international special reports and other commentaries on issues pertaining to global crises. The special reports are published in our 2010 Global Spotlight e-magazines and on this IIJ site.

The stories are originally pitched, investigated, written, edited, and published by the students, in conjunction with the Institute for International Journalism. The Global Spotlight publishes three issues annually, which feature underreported international issues and current affairs from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South America and Western/Eastern Europe.
