Past Events

In April 2014 we held an event open to all alums, entitled 'Covering MH370'. The event was held at Business FM 89.9 in Petaling Jaya. We discussed the challenges of covering a homegrown story that had so many international dimensions, attending press conferences, local versus foreign media angles and implications for the future of Malaysian journalism.

In 2013 we held an event entitled 'Is There Room for an Independent Media in Malaysia?'.
