"Promoting an Independent and Pluralistic Media" virtual discussion


On the occasion of the World Press Freedom Day, the Journalists and Writers Foundation and the Stony Brook University School of Communication and Journalism welcome you to join us at a virtual discussion “Promoting an Independent and Pluralistic Media” on Monday, 3 May 2021 at 1.30 PM – 3.00 PM (EST).

On the 30th anniversary of the Windhoek Declaration, professional journalists and journalism students will discuss how to promote and strengthen media ethics and the role of media in democracy.

The Windhoek Declaration is considered a benchmark for ensuring press freedom around the world. It all began at a seminar in Windhoek in 1991. Still, the ideas exchanged by African journalists and media professionals acted as a catalyst to encourage press freedom, independence, and pluralism in Africa and other parts of the world.
