Workshop: Professionalism in Online Media - Challenges, Opportunities and Practices

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in cooperation with the Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) are organizing workshop titled “Professionalism in Online Media - Challenges, Opportunities and Practices” which will be held in Ohrid. Very important factor in the self-regulation system is the media to respect the ethical standards during their work. In this direction, the best ethical practices will be presented to participants during the workshop and through a debate the best and final criteria for selecting online media that can join the Register of professional online media will be identified. This register will be created by the AJM, the Council of Media Ethics and the Chamber of Commerce. The selected trainers for the workshop are very experienced on these topics and their knowledge in ethical reporting and media self-regulation as well as legal aspects in which media operate can help online media to improve their knowledge how to work better in this legal framework. Taking this into consideration the final goal of this workshop is to have even more professional media, to make a clear difference between professional and unprofessional media, and finally to have a better informed public. Having this in mind, the whole process should help to regain the trust of the public in the media.

Dialogue for Cooperation in the Field of European Integration and Accession Negotiations

Considering the lack of expertise, which North Macedonia lacks in regards to the Accession Negotiations, it is of key importance that the country utilizes regional expertise. In this context country which has successfully finalized this process in more recent history is Bulgaria. Keeping in mind the new positive dynamic of the bilateral relationship between the two countries Bulgarian experts could be used to spur the process of EU integration by providing significant know-how and knowledge. The aim of this event is to open a table of dialogue which includes academia, experts, politicians, journalists and representatives of NGO’s aiming to boost North Macedonia’s capacity for negotiation once the process initiates.

Dialogue of Religions – Dialogue of Ethnicities

“Trust” and “dialogue” are the key terms that the religious communities in the Balkans have to build on in order to strengthen their role in society. All efforts have to be made in order to build trust through dialogue among the religious communities, but also between the religious institutions and the state and society. This was the outcome of a two-day event organized by the KAS on 18-19 September in Skopje, which was attended by the Heads of the Orthodox, Islamic, Catholic, Evangelical-Methodist and the representative of the Jewish religious communities in Macedonia and representatives of the Catholic and Islamic religious communities and the new Head of the Inter-Religious Institute in Bosnia-Hercegovina, as well as by Baba Edmond Brahimaj of the Headquarters of the Bektashian community and Bishop Homeyer of Hildesheim. It was the first of its kind in such a high-ranking and international format, which led to a lively and constructive exchange of experiences in inter-religious dialogue in Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Germany, and a sharing of “lessons learnt”. At the end of the discussion it was noted that inter-religious dialogue in the Balkans has made significant progress and can pose as a model for the communication between different religious communities in other European countries as well.
