Symposium of the Forum Media and Development (FoME) from 3-4 November:
Observer, Agitator, Target: Media and Media Assistance in Fragile Contexts

Media have the capacity to escalate or mitigate conflict, to act as catalysts or agitators, to engage in reconciliation or mobilisation. At the same time journalists and media-outlets are themselves targeted as parties to the conflict. The increasing impact of media-conflict-interactions has prompted the German Forum Media and Development to dedicate this year’s symposium to challenges of media assistance and media development in countries affected by armed conflict and instability. It will be hosted by Media in Cooperation and Transition (MICT), and take place from 3 to 4 November at the Robert Bosch Stiftung in Berlin.

The following topics will be subject to discussion:

  • Challenges of fragile statehood for media and media assistance
  • Measuring the impact of media and conflict reporting on conflict
  • Ethical dilemmas for journalists and media development actors in conflict societies
  • The role of media in reconciliation and transitional justice
  • Information verification and Open Source intelligence
  • Safety and protection of journalists in conflict zones

Besides presentations and discussions, the symposium will also include a Media Development Coaching Session and a Practitioner Roundtable organised by CAMECO. Both of these open sessions provide opportunity for academics as well as practitioners for getting together in small groups to share experiences and discuss current challenges of their work.

The symposium programme can be found here.
