Offer: Thomson Reuters Foundation: Business News and Tracking Down Corruption

Location: Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Language: English

In these days of global economic crisis, business and financial news have moved from the back pages to being the lead stories. But that’s not much good if you don’t know the difference between Equities and Futures, and think a Bond is something to do with British spies. Fear not! Thomson Reuters Foundation and the Mediacentar Sarajevo bring you the chance to understand the basics of how money really DOES make the world go around.

And while we’re explaining to you how it all works, we’ll also show you where to look to find those nasty little corruption stories that lurk hidden in the numbers. Join us for Business News and Tracking Down Corruption in Sarajevo. No financial experience necessary, just a keen interest in learning about this exciting and fast-paced part of journalism.
