The power of the media – The responsibility of journalists

This is an online educational tool for teachers of journalism, media and communication who want to raise the students’ competence on issues related to diversity, intercultural understanding, human rights and ethics. The manual will also be useful for practising journalists, editors, other media workers and students.


Participatory teaching methods are an essential part of the manual and are included in all 11 sessions. Such methods represent active, exploratory, exciting and inspiring forms of learning.

The manual is the result of a long-term partnership between the departments of journalism education at universities in Norway, Russia and Sweden, as well as the Human Rights Academy, a Norwegian non-governmental organization.
