The first master candidates of the Norhed project “RUIICAY-HIOA Intercultural Communication Linkage” graduate this fall. The project is a university network collaboration aiming to increase institutional capacities on autonomous intercultural communication in education and research. The students learn how to address the challenges of indigenous people in Latin America from an intercultural or journalistic perspective, and how journalism and media can facilitate respectful dialogue between people and cultures.
The courses of the program circulate between Ecuador, Colombia, and Nicaragua, and the 21 master candidates represent all three countries.
