ARTICLE 19 is inviting applications from representatives of audio-visual media regulatory bodies and press councils from across the European Union to participate in a two-day workshop in London on international legal standards on regulating hate speech in the media.
The workshop will provide a space for sharing experience and best practices and will include a mixture of theoretical and practical sessions. The workshop will also seek to elaborate new, creative and innovative approaches towards promoting equality and freedom of expression in the media, including the social media presence of media actors.
The workshop is part of #MediaAgainstHate, a Europe-wide campaign led by the European Federation of Journalists and a coalition of civil society organisations. The campaign involves journalists, civil society, lawyers and regulatory bodies, in order to counter hate speech and discrimination in the media, both on and offline.
ARTICLE 19 will cover travel, accommodation and a modest per diem while in London.
To apply, please send a CV and short letter of motivation, stating your expectations for the workshop and describing one good practice in the field of countering hate speech and/or promoting freedom of expression from your institution or your country to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 28 August. Successful applicants will be notified by 1 September. Tags:
