The second edition is already scheduled for autumn 2020, coinciding with the Francophone Heads of State summit, in conjunction with the 39th edition of the
Assises de la Presse Francophone [Conference of the Francophone Press] organised by UPF Internationale [the International Francophone Press Union].
In close collaboration with publishers and journalists from Africa and the Mediterranean Basin, and also the
Tunisian Committee of the Conference, bringing together Tunisian professional organisations, the Journalism & Citizenship association and its partners want the meeting to be not only demanding but to stand as a benchmark amongst stakeholders both north and south of the Mediterranean.
Major current challenges to democracy make this meeting an urgent necessity.
For this first edition, the organisers will welcome more than 200 contributors. 350 professional participants from the Mediterranean Basin, Africa, the European Union and the northern French-speaking area have already registered to date for the some 45 workshops, discussions and lectures. The exchanges are intended to enable the formulation of specific proposals aimed at promoting high-quality information in all the participating countries.
The general public is also invited to participate in the exchanges, particularly during the late-afternoon and evening discussions and meetings. The meetings will take place in French and Arabic.
Admission is free
The theme for this first edition, following on from the Tours Conference of last March, will be: “Citizen-friendly journalism".
Freedom of expression, journalism in crisis stricken countries and divergent views on migrants will also be a focus of these meetings, together with the need for action to promote Media and Information Education.
Around 45 workshops, lectures, discussions and public meetings will take place in French and Arabic.
