The panel will focus on pressing issues related to media and democracy and will provide an overview of the main challenges through case studies from Europe and Africa. The panelists will reflect on, among other things, changes to the status of journalists, the sustainability of media organisations, public service journalism, and reporting on climate change and environmental issues.
They will also discuss the European Media Freedom Act (EMFA), a new set of rules that aim to protect media independence and pluralism in the European Union (EU). While the EU has been seen as a standard-setter on digital policy, it is unclear if the Act will bring significant and more importantly, implementable changes to the media market.
The event will be held in a hybrid setting (in person in Buontalenti's Elinor Ostrom Room and on Zoom). When registering please indicate if you wish to attend the event in person or online. Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
