expression, media development and digital transformation. During lunchtime

development experts, practitioners and decision-makers. The debate will be 
streamed live via internet and will take place onstage at the DW Akademie 
Rhine Lounge on Monday and Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. Topics are: „Introducing 
DW Akademie’s Media Freedom Navigator“ (Monday) and „The importance of 
freedom of expression and access to information in sustainable 
development“ (Tuesday).

#mediadev_bites is an interactive, hands-on workshop format that fosters 
exchange and discussion on current field topics among experts in 
international media development. #mediadev_bites will take place on the

global map that shows users at a glance how organizations like Reporters 
Without Borders and Freedom House rank media freedom across the globe.

-       On Monday, June 22, Mathis Winkler, Head of the Asia & Europe 
Division at DW Akademie will examine the topic: “Independent voices or 
mouthpieces of the rulers? The role and impact of state and public 
broadcasters in transformation and conflict”. Should state media be 
instrumentalized, ignored or transformed? The panel will take into account

transformation of state-owned broadcasters.

-       On Tuesday, June 23, Ute Lange, Head of Communications at DW 
Akademie, will host a fishbowl discussion about “Political and crisis 
communication capacities for civil society and public administrators”. DW 
Akademie focuses on civil society and public institutions alike to 
consider their impact on transparency, respect for human rights, freedom 
of expression and access to information. Hence, DW Akademie helps to 
improve the communications skills and capabilities of private 
organizations and public institutions.
