Harassment of journalists and how to tackle it – Sharing best practices
Time: 7.5.2018 at 14:00–17:00
Venue: Permanent Representation of Finland to the EU
Avenue de Cortenbergh 80
In a networked and polarized world, journalists are more and more often at the receiving end of harassment. To share ideas, experiences and best practices in tackling the phenomenon, the Association of Finnish Foreign Affairs Journalists organises an international seminar in Brussels in May 2018. Its goal is to have interesting, informal conversations on the topic between people of different backgrounds so that all participants leave with better tools to deal with harassment. The event is funded by the Mediapooli branch of Finland’s National Emergency Supply Organisation, while the venue is offered by the Permanent Representation of Finland to the EU.
The event will be conducted under Chatham House Rule: information heard in the seminar can be freely used, but the identities or affiliations of speakers and other participants can not be revealed when doing so. We are happy to provide contact information of the speakers to fix up interviews after the seminar.
Perspectives of the seminar include:
