Abstract

Globalisation and a subsequent increasingly interdependent world are forcing an evolution of current journalism practice. It is argued that new forms of international storytelling must be underpinned by a global ethical approach that shifts the current conceptual framework of foreign correspondence from the nation-state to a new international arena. Human rights journalism is presented as a potential model to facilitate such a shift. This article illustrates the responsibility of journalism education to shape global reporters of the future and sets out a scenario-based approach to teaching and learning that empowers students to reflect both theoretically and practically on calls for a more cosmopolitan journalistic practice.
