DISCUSSION 1
THE MEDIA FOR CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS TODAY?

10:00 - 11:30
Place : THEATRE

Journalists no longer have a monopoly over the public space. Since the advent of the digital age, civil society has on occasion led campaigns on political deadlock, social issues and unequal access to public services.

However, civil society does not necessarily work to the same professional standards in collecting and disseminating information. In view of this situation, what is the future of the relationships between digital media, online communities and civil society?

Whether in the Middle East, the Maghreb, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia or Europe, this discussion will focus on a number of local initiatives in an attempt to find a common response.
