On November 2, the Headquarters of International Collaboration held a program titled “Special Session with BBC World News – Global Events and International Journalism” at the Global Hall on Surugadai Campus. All sessions in this program were conducted in English (with simultaneous interpretation). The session titled “Reporting of Global Events on the BBC World News” featured an address by Mariko Oi, the first Japanese national to serve as a reporter for the BBC World News. In her address, Oi talked about how the BBC World News reported on a huge global event in the form of the national referendum on the U.K.’s exit from the European Union, and approaches at the BBC.
The cross-talk session that followed took up the U.S. presidential election. The participants were Dr. Ichiro Fujisaki, President of the America-Japan Society, who formerly served as Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Geneva and Ambassador to the United States; Oi; and Dr. Seiichi Kanise, Professor of the Meiji University School of Global Japanese Studies, who previously worked as a reporter for the U.S. news agency Associated Press and the L’Agence France-Presse.
