Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the “Forum Medien und Entwicklung” (FoME) 
sincerely invite you to the 6th FoME-symposium: 

The “Fourth Estate” in Democracy  Assistance 
Practices and Challenges of German & International Media Development 
2-3 November, 2010 
Schloss Eichholz, Wesseling near Bonn, Germany 

Founded in 2005 the “Forum Media and Development” (FoMe) serves as an 
independent platform for German political foundations, non-governmental 
and parastatal organisations active in media development. Each year, FoME 
organizes an international symposium focusing on a specific issue. In 
2010, with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and 
Development (BMZ) under new leadership, it seems to be the right moment to 
take a new look at German media development cooperation. At the same time 
media assistance has been gaining momentum on the international stage - be 
it with regard to post-conflict societies, the media's role in climate 
change or in the context of the digital revolution.

In order to study international practices of media development cooperation 
and its challenges we have invited international experts in this field to 
report on the successes, difficulties and lessons learned in media 
development cooperation. Case studies from a number of countries and an 
insiders’ look into donor programmes form the basis for a critical 
reflection on the role of media assistance in the context of democracy 
promotion. Our main interest is to have an open debate about the very 
practical challenges of our work.

The symposium will be complemented by a documentation on German media 
assistance (based on a survey sent out in September 2010) and a literature 
guide on international media assistance.

Please find an invitation and the programme attached.
