At times characterized by a global pandemic, the Anna Lindh Foundation together with the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED) organises the first virtual Intercultural Trends and Media Platform called: “Feeling connected during the crisis – media narratives of the Euro-Mediterranean”, on the 9th of June from 11:30 -13:00 CEST.
The meeting is conceived as a space for a facilitated debate between journalists, academia and civil society to exchange reflections on the way media productions, cross-cultural reporting and mutual perceptions are changing as a result of the current crisis in the Euro-Mediterranean region and to share ideas on what could be done to minimize the negative consequences of the current crisis on intercultural exchanges and dialogue
The outcomes of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform will feed into the broader process of reflection carried out in 2020 on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Barcelona Process/EuroMed Partnership (launched in 1995) and in view of further strengthening cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
About the Anna Lindh Foundation Intercultural Trends and Media Platform
The Intercultural Trends and Media Platform brings together media, academia and civil society to discuss how perceptions between Europeans and Southern and Eastern Mediterranean people have evolved in recent years as a result of the growing migratory and refugee movements, the rise of populist’s discourses and phenomena of violent extremism.
If you are a journalist, member of civil society or academic who would like to participate in a future edition of the Intercultural Trends and Media Platform, please do not hesitate to contact us (Johannes.firstname.lastname@example.org - Intercultural Research Social Media Executive)
