A global migration crisis revealing the paradoxes of our moral systems, a growing group of political leaders questioning European core beliefs, and a US-president turning the world upside down: Yesterday’s unthinkable seems to be today’s normal.
- How do we, journalists, live up to the challenge of facing these changes and of perceiving and confronting them?
- How do we – in the eye of the hurricane – find our role and provide the information basis that society needs to adapt or react?
- How do journalists in societies as deeply polarized as Poland, for example, get through the noise to the real problems?
- How do we understand and define our own role and positions on some of the most divisive questions currently discussed in Europe?
These and a range of other questions will be discussed at this year’s n-ost media conference “Face it! Journalism beyond denial and ideology” in Warsaw from 20-23 September.
This will be a weekend of intense formal and informal discussions between journalists, media professionals and activists from all over Europe.
The n-ost media conference 2018 provides a space to look at a wide range of the global challenges that journalism faces. The participants will discuss the shrinking space for dialogue, the problems of post-Socialist media ownership, and the means of overcoming it with a special focus on Poland and the Visegrad countries (two conference tracks are dedicated to them).
