News Five to Attend Media Workshop in Barbados

Reporter Duane Moody and I are among a group of regional media personnel who will be participating in a Media Law Workshop to be held in Barbados which is funded by the Canadian Government.  The two-day event is entitled Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT Justice).  A release from the organizers says IMPACT Justice, is a regional justice sector reform project, being implemented from within the Caribbean Law Institute Centre, UWI, Cave Hill Campus. The workshop takes place from February twenty-third to twenty-fourth at the Radisson Aquatica Resort.  The topics address the rights of the media; the role of the media in educating the public about their rights and the media’s duty to act responsibly. The agenda is packed with a number of presentations that will provide us with a better insight when reporting on issues relating to legal matters. Doctor Margaret Gail Miller, Senior Director to the Caribbean Regional Programme and Director for Canada to the Caribbean Development Bank will deliver opening remarks on behalf of the Government of Canada. Professor Velma Newton, Regional Project Director of IMPACT Justice, will provide an introduction to the Project.
