The Institute for War and Peace would like to invite you to apply to a Grant Competition for Investigative Reporting.
IWPR is offering grants for young journalists interested in investigative stories on local governance, transparency and municipal politics in Lebanon to encourage local and national media to dig deeper and to hold local politicians accountable.
IWPR wants to give a group of you the chance to work on an investigate story of your choice.
To qualify for the grant, please submit the story idea you want to pursue along with a research outline and a brief CV summarizing your background.
some things you only see in Lebanon,
take for example this girl 'straightening' her hair in the ABC Achrafieh ladies room - yes, with a flat iron plugged into the wall!
i had a quick chat with her, during which i learnt that she had a valid excuse for the absurdity of her situation - no i wont go into details - but this begs the question, "Is it pure coincidence that she just happened to be carrying a flat iron at the right time, or are we just going overboard with appearances, unwilling to be ungroomed for the slightest moment?"
