“Covering Globalization” was a four-day workshop held March 25-28, 2004 sponsored by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Speakers included William Easterly, Jeffrey Sachs and Joseph E. Stiglitz. Journalists learned about the different elements of globalization — including labor issues, free trade, resource wealth and bailouts — from the experts. Academics, World Bank officials, NGO and corporate representatives offered practical training sessions. Journalists, experienced in covering these issues, helped facilitate the discussions. The participants were also introduced to a web-based resource that offers information on key issues of globalization. The agenda featured a number of prominent Columbia faculty members, including Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and Earth Institute Director Jeffrey Sachs.
