MGIMO journalism students head to Baku for cooperative forum
The six-day event, organized by the Azerbaijani Ministry of Youth and Sport and the Azerbaijani Youth Organization of Russia, was co-sponsored by the MGIMO Student Union.
During the conference, journalism students from across Russian and Azerbaijan had the chance to interact with professional Russian journalists from such agencies as Russia Today, RTR, Kommersant and First Channel. A special session was held with the head of Azerbaijan news agency Trent, where students will discuss the difficulty and problems of modern journalism and the future of journalism in an increasingly interactive technology climate.
Students also participated in discussions sessions with members of both Russian and Azerbaijani government organizations, educational institutions and private-sector businesses. Guest panelists included the vice rector of Azerbaijan's Diplomatic Academy, the head of Azerbaijan's state-run oil and gas company and various university officials from across Azerbaijan.
Prior to departing, MGIMO students attended tours of the ancient city of Sheki, where they visited the palace of Shekiyskogo Hussein Khan and went on nature walks across the Caucasus Mountains.
Officials from both Russia and the Republic of Azerbaijan hope to continue the foreign conference series to increase diplomatic relations between both countries.
