Bülent Mumay received last year the South and East Europe Media Organization's (SEEMO) Human Rights Award.Bülent Mumay, the Digital Media Coordinator and Executive Board Member of daily Hürriyet, will participate in the British Foreign Commonwealth Office’s International Leaders Program from April 7-11. Mumay was nominated for this prestigious U.K. government program by the British Embassy in Ankara.
The International Leaders Program was launched as an initiative of U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague in March 2013, and seeks to promote lasting partnerships with a new generation of talented people. It comprises visits to the U.K. for groups of around 10 rising stars from around the world, selected for their potential to become leaders in government, politics, international organizations, global business, or the media.
The next visit program, in April, will be the sixth so far. Participants will come from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, India, Oman, South Africa, and Turkey. Each visit showcases diverse aspects of the U.K. and includes high level engagement with the government, Parliament, media, business, academia and civil society organization. Foreign Secretary Hague personally meets each group of visitors.
The week-long program is followed by an optional individual program for visitors, targeted in their particular area of interest.
