Singapur – Cómo crear espacio en los medios del sudeste de Asia para hacer reportajes sobre temas sociales y de desarrollo en el contexto regional de la Asociación de Naciones del Sudeste del Asia (ASEAN) fue el foco de una reunión de expertos organizada a principios de noviembre por IPS Asia-Pacífico, con el Centro de Estudios ASEAN como co-organizador.
Llevada a cabo en el Instituto de Estudios del Sudeste de Asia (ISEAS) en Singapur, la reunión presenció un intercambio saludable de puntos de vista entre los periodistas y editores experimentados de la región, expertos en políticas internacionales, investigadores y escritores sobre cómo lograr reportajes en profundidad más críticos en ASEAN, dado que la mayor parte de la cobertura de noticias se centra en cumbres de alto perfil y gravita hacia voces del estado, y considerando que su meta de una Comunidad ASEAN en el 2015 se aproxima.

SINGAPORE – How to create space in South-east Asian media for reporting on social and development issues in the context of Association of South-east Asian Nations (ASEAN) regionalism was the focus of an experts’ meeting organised in early November by IPS Asia-Pacific, with the ASEAN Studies Centre as co-organiser.
Held at the Institute of South-east Asian Studies (ISEAS) in Singapore, the meeting saw a healthy exchange of views among senior journalists and editors from within the region, foreign policy experts, researchers and writers about how to get more critical, in-depth reportage around ASEAN given that much of the news coverage around it focuses on high-profile summits and gravitates toward state voices, and as its goal of an ASEAN Community in 2015 nears.

Inter Press Service (IPS) is sending a team of reporters from Africa and South Asia to report on the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea, and the Global Civil Society Forum that precedes it. The team will produce daily features and analysis for an IPS TerraViva online site in English and Spanish and in several Asian languages. Selected reports will feature in IPS’s global news service.
Follow the team’s coverage in real time on Twitter at @ipsnews and connect with IPS news on Facebook.
IPS reporting will reflect the agency’s focus on the South and the emergence of South-South co-operation as a powerful dimension of the aid effectiveness debate. Civil society, participating as full partners in the HLF4, and the gender perspective, will be prominent in the reporting.
The Busan TerraViva site has a useful archive that looks back to IPS coverage of previous HLFs and other international financing for development meetings. Finally, the coverage from South Korea is linked out to the concurrent negotiations in South Africa about climate change, where IPS has an African-led reporting team preparing a Durban TerraViva.
