TERRORISM AND WAR CONFLICTS – FREE MEDIA VS. PROPAGANDA
Following the abovementioned panel, this workshop will particularly focus on whether the media that face these troubled situations live by the ethical norms and professional standards and when they become a part of propaganda themselves. Can we tell where the dividing line is? Can media resist manipulation attempts and lies that come with the conspiracy theories? Is it possible to prevent the spreading of extremist ideologies and the zillions of lies circulating in the virtual space?
V4 IN EUROPEAN AND CENTRAL-EUROPEAN CONTEXT
25 years after its establishment, the V4 group consisting of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia represents a stabilization element in Central European context and a strong voice within the EU. Main priorities of Visegrad cooperation such as the Eastern Partnership, energy security and other questions, as well as the current refugee crisis issues will be introduced to the workshop participants. We will make the most of the presence of media from V4 countries to establish a platform for creative cooperation and cross-cultural projects implementation, as well as for the strengthening of identity of the V4 countries’ citizens.
