UNESCO Colloquium

Journalism under fire: Challenges of our times
UNESCO Headquarters, 23 March 2017
Room X
9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

UNESCO will organize two  round  table  discussions  in  order  to provide  a  global  platform  to  assess  the  international  landscape  facing  media  actors. Thus,  media leaders,  journalists, experts and  Member  States  will  have  an  opportunity  to  analyze the  extent  to which there is a “crisis of journalism”, and unpack the main driving forces involved. The format of both round tables will generally not be speeches, but television - style discussion and debate with a panel, as well as audience interaction.

Organized in association with the International Programme for the Development of Communication, this colloquium will be held at UNESCO Headquarters within the framework of the La Presse en Liberté week of 22 to 29 March 2017, which includes a series of round tables on topics related to press freedom and an exhibition of original front pages of newspapers’ first editions. The week is co-organized by UNESCO together with the Permanent Delegation of Switzerland to UNESCO and the Permanent Delegation of France to UNESCO.
