MAAR will host a launch event in November 2018 in New Delhi to coincide with the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November). We will present findings from our initial research in 2018, one of the largest comparative content analysis of news reporting of rape in India, covering ten newspapers across six languages in India for a three-month period (June to August 2018).
In the third phase of the MAAR project, May to October 2019, we will conduct capacity building workshops in partnership with UNESCO to train journalists in best practice guidelines on news reporting of rape and gendered violence. These will take place in urban and regional locations at / close to: New Delhi, Trivandrum, Manipur, and Mumbai. Exact locations to be determined.
