Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University (ACFJ)
The rapid pace of technological change, stiff competition from other media, threats to press freedom, and complex social issues have made the job of running a newsroom more complicated and challenging than ever. The Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University was established as a response to meet these challenges.
Also known as the ACFJ, the Asian Center for Journalism is dedicated to the promotion of excellence in journalism in Southeast Asia. It aims to foster a free, viable and responsible press that will nurture the public discourse essential to an informed practice of citizenship and democracy.
To help working journalists sharpen their newsroom skills, the ACFJ offers both online and on-campus courses. The ACFJ is a joint venture between Ateneo de Manila University and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, a private, non-profit foundation that seeks to promote liberal democracy, constitutional government, and a social market economy.
