Jusoor International Center for Media and Development is organizing its second international workshop this March in Geneva, entitled “Media and Racism: The Permanent Clash.”
The workshop focuses on the role of the media in countering racism and anti-other speech and on media ethics, which makes it imperative for media professionals and journalists not to become involved in racist issues or the promotion of racist ideas in societies.
The workshop will be held on March 16, in the presence of a group of specialists in the field of media and anti-racism.
There will be six speakers at the workshop: Said Bouamama, Algerian sociologist and political activist, Pierre Tevanian, Professor of Philosophy and Sociology, Dr. Baptiste Brodard, Swiss sociologist and sociologist, Dr. Vincent Geisser, political scientist and sociologist Dr. Olivier Le Cour, and French journalist and writer Jean-Pierre Perrin.
Also participating in the workshop is Mohammed Hammadi, the head of the center and an Emirati writer and journalist, concerned with issues of media, freedoms, and international affairs.
The workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Geneva time at the address indicated on the poster.
