ERIO's Executive Director appointed as an EU Jury member of the “For Diversity. Against Discrimination" EU Journalist Award 2006
The “For Diversity. Against Discrimination " EU Journalist Award 2006 will be awarded to journalists whose work contributes to a better public understanding of the benefits of diversity and the fight against discrimination, especially on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, age, disability and sexual orientation.
This year the Journalist Award also featured a special, new prize, asking young journalists up to the age of 28 to submit their articles. While nominating a candidate for this special award was optional, many national juries decided to put forward an aspirant. The jury included Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission, professors from Belgian Universities and prominent journalists. The official EU jury met on March 07, 2007 to evaluate the national entries submitted for both award categories and to determine the overall winners. The Award will be given in an official ceremony in Brussels in mid-April of this year.
