The Africa-UK Journalism Education Exchange Network is an initiative to improve the quality of journalism education in Africa and the UK, and to boost international university links. As part of the effort to increase the capacity of media trainers and journalism education institutions, UNESCO, through its International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC), is funding the launch of this network. This initiative is the result of cooperation between the UK National Commission for UNESCO, the University of Bedfordshire in Luton, the Association for Journalism Educators (AJE) and the Polytechnic of Namibia. After a successful conference in Luton in April 2012, this list was created to further deepen the links and collaboration initiated by the conference, and to form the locus of a range of further opportunities. Membership is open to journalism educators in Africa and the UK, and interested other parties.
