Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism, Ateneo University, Manila, Philippines
Amid innovations spawned by digital technology, heightened restraints to press freedom, and the surge in news and issues with cross-border ramifications, the idea of reviving “pure” journalism education emerged in the agenda of the Ateneo de Manila University. Added impetus came from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, which has an international reputation for development work in emerging democracies. Seeking to help raise the standards of Asian journalism, the foundation entrusted the Ateneo, a long-time partner in social development, with its regional journalism training program. In June 2000, the Konrad Adenauer Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University was inaugurated. It was envisioned as a hub of journalism education in the region, an oasis of learning for working journalists. In May 2006, “Asian” was added to the center’s name to accurately reflect the true geographical scope of its mandate.
Today, the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University (ACFJ) promotes good journalism by providing training to and educational opportunities for working journalists in Asia.

Pathshala – South Asian Media Institute, Dhaka, Bangladesh
The name Pathshala comes from the ancient education system that prevailed in South Asia. It brings to mind classes held underneath a large tree; conjuring up learning spaces without walls, in the cool shade of its leaves. The South Asian Media Institute not only allows students to explore the world of image making but provides them opportunities to question beyond the confines of the discipline. The conceptual absence of classroom walls enables 1st year students and 3rd year students to attend the same classes and work together on collaborative projects together with visiting faculty. This enhances and complements each student’s learning experience.
The institute started in 1998 in conjunction with a three-year World Press Photo (WPP) educational initiative. It was launched to coincide with the Dhaka’s annual WPP exhibition. This exhibition was also replicated in other countries like Peru, Bosnia and Zimbabwe. The British Council, The Thomson Foundation and Panos South Asia supported this initiative of WPP and Drik Picture Library Ltd. The first group of six students is now among prominent photographers whose photographs have been published in some of the leading publications worldwide. From its modest beginnings Pathshala expanded attracting students from within Bangladesh as well as outside.
Many of the graduated photographers have become internationally renowned photographers and the number of students that have joined the World Press Photo Masterclass is unusual for any photography education in the world.
On 22 March 2010, Pathshala launched a new Department: Broadcast and Multimedia. This department currently offers basic training in filmmaking, cinematography, video editing, motion graphics, animation, news presentation and reporting.
This media institute designs the courses and training programs for local and international clients: individuals, companies, and organizations. Part of the long-term plan is to disseminate our unique expertise across the region through master classes, special events, and conferences focused on the issues faced by journalists and media professionals in South Asia.
