This session explores the crises of journalism and freedom of expression globally in term of the quandary in which we find ourselves, faced by religious and ideological extremism (e.g. Islamist extremism, White supremacy, racism, etc.) on the one hand, and “national security” concerns and measures (e.g. immigration, Trumpism, counter-terrorism, growing constraints on freedom of expression) on the other. In this context, the daily execution of journalism’s fundamental mandate, speaking truth to power, is increasingly under sustained pressure. Media experts from across the globe will discuss the crises – how it impacts the business, modern storytelling, the impact on our audiences and the very ethics of our work - and how we can navigate the future.
