"Human rights and globalization -- challenges to the media"

4th Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Germany

"Islamic Media in a secular environment and vice versa" is the topic of a panel organized by KAS at the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum "Human rights and globalization -- challenges to the media" in Germany.

Details

The Forum titled "Human rights and globalization -- challenges to the media" will take place in in Bonn, Germany from June 20 to 22, 2011. Deutsche Welle once again expects more than 1,300 participants from around the world.

In “the” Arab world, the media landscape varies greatly. In the KAS panel "Islamic Media in a secular environment and vice versa" participants from Egypt, Turkey, the Palestinian territories and the United Arab Emirates will analyze the situation in their homelands and reflect on the political and social parameters shaping the media’s work there. They will focus on the matter of interaction between Islam and secularism when addressing questions such as: What characterizes the media landscape in their home countries? How “Islamic” or “secular” are the media and environments there? Where and what are the potentials for conflict? What sparks dispute? What tensions arise between those actually producing media products? And finally, how does that impact society?
