About the Author

Elsje Fourie
Doctoral candidate (Bath, United Kingdom / Trento, Italy)

I'm a South African PhD student living in Italy and the UK, and looking at African perspectives on China and India's development. Before undertaking my doctoral studies, I did some work on development and conflict resolution in Japan, Indonesia and Northern Ireland. I'll be doing some field research in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Kenya this summer, so hopefully this project will be a chance to combine many of my professional and academic interests.


The Guardian International Development Journalism Competition

Published 29th March 2010 - 2 comments - 3786 views -


Just a very quick post to alert fellow Th!nkers to the Guardian International Development Journalism Competition.  It's unfortunately only open to UK residents, but I think there are a few of us on here.  I applied last year and it was good fun.  I'm not sure I'll make it this year, but it looks like a good opportunity for an energetic Th!inker.

The deadline is on the 30th of April and there are 16 themes to choose between.  There are also some general tips on the website for amateur development journalists.  Worth taking a look at even if you're not entering, as the Guardian is quite strong on development journalism.
