On the occasion of the European Week of Media Literacy, the Council of Europe and Reporters Without Borders invite to a conference on the 20th of March in Strasbourg, France. This might be of interest to experts on Media Literacy from Community Media across Europe!
Both academic and regulatory angles to look at media literacy and provide a bridge between the two will be discussed. What are the applicable standards and where are the main challenges for their implementation? How can evidence based research better inform policy making in this domain? What roles do policymakers, regulators and scholars play?
The conference will provide an insight into updated standards on media pluralism, ownership and literacy included in the Council of Europe’s Recommendation CM/Rec(2018)1 on media pluralism and transparency of media ownership, and ideas for embedding those standards into practice.
