World Journalism Education Council to convene in Montreal to select venue for 2016’s World Journalism Education Congress

Representatives to the World Journalism Education Council will meet August 5 in Montreal to select a venue for the 4th World Journalism Education Congress.

The congresses are held under the auspices of the World Journalism Education Council, which is an informal coalition of 32 academic organizations involved partly or wholly in journalism education that is dedicated to advancing the field by sponsoring congresses, conducting a global census and producing scholarship.

The fourth meeting of the congress in 2016 will follow highly successful congresses in Singapore (2007), Grahamstown, South Africa (2010) and Mechelen, Belgium (2013).
