CMFE is partnering with leading European media organisations in a new project focusing on hate speech and on ways to tackle it through ethical journalism practices and accountable media reporting. Together with the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), Article19, COMMIT, COSPE, Media Diversity Institute (MDI) and the Croatian Journalists’ Association (CJA), CMFE will organise training workshops for individual journalists, journalists’ organisations, media organisations, CSOs, community media and media regulators to counter discrimination and hate speech.
The focus of the work of CMFE and COMMIT will be on awareness and empowerment.
Three media literacy workshops will take place in 2017 (in Austria, Poland and Germany) with the aim of supporting:
Mutual learning and cooperation activities as instruments for sharing concrete best practices transferable to different legal contexts, that are likely to increase efficient prevention of discrimination/hate speech
Development of counter-narratives through multilingual programs / campaigns fighting stereotypes and populism, taking creative examples from a local/small scale to a broader context
Stay tuned for more information on the project activities!
The project is financially supported by the European Commission
