DW Akademie calls for papers for its 4th media dialogue symposium on May 29, 2013, which will address the topic of "Pakistan's Media Landscape: The Effects of Liberalization."
It has been more than a decade since Pakistan liberalized its media sector in 2002. The media has developed rapidly since then, but journalists now face many new challenges. Media professionals have to juggle questions of free speech and self-censorship in an environment that is considered one of the most dangerous for journalists to work in.
At the symposium in Bonn, international media researchers, political scientists, economists, legal experts and journalists will discuss recent developments as well as future trends in Pakistan’s media landscape and will examine issues such as journalists' safety, self-censorship, sensationalism, and conflict-sensitive reporting.
DW Akademie is organizing DW Media Dialogue in collaboration with Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences. The deadline for paper proposals is February 25, 2013.
