Al Jazeera and U.S. Foreign Policy: What WikiLeaks' U.S. Embassy Cables Reveal about U.S. Pressure and Propaganda http://mrzine.monthlyreview.org/2011/forte220911.html
Institutions of British and French journalism have worked to train the staff of Al Jazeera, which has also developed a relationship with the University of Missouri's School of Journalism. Al Jazeera's training center has no staff of its own, but "imports trainers on an as-needed basis from various British/French/US journalism institutions," including the UK's Thomson Foundation and France's Ecole Superieure de Journalisme de Lille.
Al Jazeera's training courses are conducted in English. The training center -- which functions as a foreign assimilation agent -- aims to spread its influence throughout the Arab world, by training staff from the region's media outlets. It reported dozens of courses in a single year, with thousands of participants. Al Jazeera's training center also participated in the U.S. Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), established by Secretary of State Colin Powell during the first term of the George W. Bush administration, and supervised by Liz Cheney, to aid local "agents of change" in the region
