Seminar “Digital Journalism and Democracy” 5 – 9 October 2016, Minsk Democracy requires more than only procedural rules, the aggregation of votes or mechanisms for holding politicians accountable. Democracy rests on a public sphere and, as an integral element of the former, free and independent journalism. Addressing young journalists (between 20 and 35 years) from Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Moldova and Armenia, our seminar offers practical insights and strategic reflection on the role and relevance of journalism in modern democracies.
When, where and how?
5 – 9 October 2016 in Minsk, Belarus. The 5-day seminar is taught in English.
16 participants will be selected and invited to Minsk. The organizers will cover travel, accommodation (double room) and board during the workshop.
