Since 2015 iMedia has managed a programme of short interactive modules and briefings commissioned by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), relating to Political Islam, Radicalisation and Counter-Insurgency in South Asia and the Middle East. These are advanced level trainings conducted by respected academic and practitioner experts and include talks, panel discussions and podcasts. A key theme in many of the courses is the role of the media in fragile and conflict-affected areas. Consistently highly rated by participants, the courses are designed to provide a baseline for officials with limited experience in the regions while, at the same time, providing senior officials (including those who may be developing expertise in a new country) with more detailed information to suit their specialised needs. iMedia provides business development and management services, liaising with the FCDO and backstopping the team of associates.
