Handbook aims to help journalists in exile


Journalists who have been forced out of their countries or are in voluntary exile may find useful tips in a handbook written by a Bhutanese refugee who has been working as a journalist in refugee camps.

According to author T.P. Mishra, former editor of the Bhutan News Service who is now working in Nepal, the book is part of an effort to equip those who previously had no voice with the essential tools needed in order to ensure that their situations are made known to the wider world.

The book, entitled Becoming A Journalist In Exile, was released simultaneously in Nepal and worldwide through the Internet on March 31.

The book can be ordered through the APFA Web site. Learn more here.
