Crown Prince Hussein met with a group of government spokespeople who are attending a capacity building program held by the JMI, and highlighted the need for credibility and transparency in presenting media narratives, noting that the vacuum created by the absence of reliable information leads to a decline in public trust.

His Royal Highness was briefed by JMI founder Her Royal Highness Princess Rym Ali on the programs and courses offered by the institute, which aims to develop the skills of media professionals in Jordan and the Arab region through educational opportunities and specialized training, especially its Master’s program in Journalism and New Media.

The Crown Prince, accompanied by Princess Rym, toured JMI’s facilities, which include an auditorium, a newsroom, TV and radio studios, a library, and other training halls.

The JMI is the first Arab educational institution to develop its journalism curricula by utilizing elements of the digital environment, as well as focusing on building a strong cultural knowledge base among its students. The institute balances theoretical and practical instruction and integrates communications technology with digital applications.
