Beyond painting pictures and cultivating stereotypes: media narratives and foreign reporting for dialogue in the EuroMed
As all actors in society are adapting for a post-lockdown world , the Anna Lindh Foundation together with the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED) organises the second virtual Intercultural Trends and Media Platform called: Beyond painting pictures and cultivating stereotypes: Media narratives and foreign reporting for dialogue in the EuroMed region on the 8th of July from 11:30 -13:30 CEST.
The meeting is set out to be a space for a facilitated debate between journalists, academia and civil society working extensively with foreign reporting and diversity, to reflect on how media production, cross-cultural reporting and mutual perceptions change as a result of the current crisis. Another aim of the meeting is also to invite reflection on what could be done, in order to bring nuance to foreign reporting and shed light on the intricacies of the Euro-Mediterranean region both now and in a world beyond the pandemic.
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.
The event is moderated by Leila Ghandi.
About the Anna Lindh Foundation Intercultural Trends and Media Platform
The Intercultural Trends and Media Platform brings together media, academia and civil society to create a network and 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.
