Consultation for policy making: insights from DRC

Here are some ideas I posted in last week chat transcripts (Diplo Policy Research-IGCBP12) and thought they would help for information. I would like to hear your thoughts.

Journalist or blogger?

I am currently a web reporter for an online website. We are called somehow "freelance", i think it's the right spelling. I've been writing since two years now and i can call myself a journalist because i am reporting on news, fresh news from the ground.

Again, i am running my own, personal blog where i post everything coming to my mind, my daily life and some special info that i want to give to the public. It's a newest one and non professional at all :). See my blog…
