UNESCO holds journalism ethics in Europe conference this month

To what extent is a newspaper editor responsible for information made available on the paper's website, such as videos, tweets or comments by readers? UNESCO is hosting a conference on "Journalism Ethics and Self-regulation in Europe: New Media, Old Dilemmas" on 27 January 2011 in Paris to answer this question and more. The challenges for media accountability in emerging democracies, and the opportunities and obstacles posed by the digital revolution, will also be on the agenda.

Press Council members, ombudspersons, editors and journalists, academics, representatives from media institutes, civil society and international organisations are invited to attend. The event will mark the closing of a 30-month UNESCO-European Commission project, implemented with the help of IFEX member the South East European Network for Professionalization of Media (SEENPM), that encouraged, assisted and accelerated media reforms in South East European countries.
