AUCKLAND (Pacific Media Centre/Pacific Media Watch): A postgraduate digital student from Auckland University of Technology’s Pacific Media Centre is researching and writing on an international media project gauging the mood and issues in Fiji before the elections due later this year.

Fiji-born Sri Krishnamurthi, who has more than two decades of communication and media experience, is engaged in the latest assignment of the popular International Journalism Project.

The study project has been a collaboration between the University of the South Pacific journalism programme and AUT’s Pacific Media Centre with their student publications Wansolwara and Asia Pacific Report.

The programme has spawned such challenging projects as the three-year-old Bearing Witness where postgraduate students gain first-hand experience of the impact of climate change in Fiji and cooperate in a learning environment with Pacific environmental and journalism students.

“We thank our USP journalism colleagues for the encouragement and support to enable these unique assignments to take place,” says PMC director Professor David Robie.

Krishnamurthi’s reports so far can be read here:
