DW Global Media Forum (Bonn, Germany)
May 27 @ 8:00 am - May 28 @ 5:00 pm
Media policy increasingly is becoming part of national and international politics. We are already witnessing how a tweet can change the world; inflaming or calming foreign policy and driving or blocking the global economy.
What consequences will this have for the media? How will newsmakers uphold standards of objectivity in this climate and provide a sense of direction for their audiences? Will the prevalence of algorithms and the continuous emergence of more and more echo chambers lead to further disinformation, in turn fueling the forces of populism and nationalism? How do these shifts in power affect the norms that dominate global politics? How do the media, politics, civil society, culture, science and business interact in this age of “shifting powers”?
The Global Media Forum 2019 will explore the impact of shifting power structures on the international media landscape and evaluate opportunities and challenges arising from digitalization and what influence that will have on trans-national communication.
