Debate on media freedom and pluralism / movie screening “The new watchdogs”

Submitted by on March 19, 2013 – 11:18No Comment

IHECS, Regie5 and the transna­tional coali­tion for media plu­ral­ism is most pleased to invite you to the launch of the first cit­i­zens’ ini­tia­tive on media free­dom and plu­ral­ism in Europe.

The screen­ing of the film “The new watch­dogs” by G. Bal­bas­tre and Y. Ker­goat, will be fol­lowed by a debate with:

Gilles Bal­bas­tre, Co-director of the film and French jour­nal­ist
Marc Gru­ber, Direc­tor of the Euro­pean Fed­er­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists
Gio­vanni Mel­ogli, Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Euro­pean Affairs of the Inter­na­tional Alliance of Jour­nal­ists and co-organizer of the Ini­tia­tive
Rui Tavares, MEP Group of the Greens / EFA

Polit­i­cal inter­fer­ence, exces­sive con­cen­tra­tion of power in the hands of eco­nomic empires, con­flicts of inter­est … The sit­u­a­tion of free­dom and media plu­ral­ism in the EU con­tin­ues to dete­ri­o­rate.
What can cit­i­zens do? What can the Euro­pean Union do?

The cit­i­zens’ ini­tia­tive is the first tool of transna­tional par­tic­i­pa­tory democ­racy. It allows at least one mil­lion cit­i­zens from at least seven EU coun­tries, to sub­mit a leg­isla­tive pro­posal to the Euro­pean Commission.

Dis­cover this tool and dis­cuss it with us on Tues­day, March 26 at 18:30 IHECS, Velge lec­ture hall.
