Invitation to FoME Jour Fixe 2016: Media In Exile  – Between Journalism and Activism

From the Azerbaijani Meydan TV to Syrian citizen journalists and internet dissidents from Sri Lanka: there are dozens of exile media
outlets in Germany, which engage in all kinds of ways with the public discourse in their countries of origin. Yet, little is known about their

How journalistic is the information provided by the activists? Does the confrontational production of news contribute to the resolution of
conflicts or rather to their escalation? How can media development, human rights and media policies support such refugee programmes?

This will be discussed at the annual Jour Fixe of the “Forum Medien und Entwicklung” (FoME) on Thursday, May 12th, from 2pm to 6pm in Berlin.

We have invited exile journalists like Simon Biniam, the editor in chief of the Eritrean exile radio “Erena”, Emin Milli from Berlin-based Meydan
TV, the convener of Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka (JDS) Bashana Abeywardane, Mariya Sadouskaya-Komlach, who worked with the 
European Radio for Belarus, the co-founder of "Raqqa is being slaughtered silently" Abdalaziz Alhamza and many more.

Journalist and media expert Gemma Pörzgen will facilitate the meeting. The key note will be given by Stephan Steinlein, state secretary of the
German Federal Foreign Office.

We also welcome scholars and practitioners, donors and civil society members to discuss lessons learned and possible ways forward.

The aim of the Jour Fixe is to share experiences of working in exile, discuss recent developments and perspectives especially for exile
journalists in Germany.

FoME is a network of institutions and individuals active in media development cooperation. It serves as the German platform for the
exchange of experiences, research and further elaboration of concepts. It facilitates the dialogue between media practitioners, development
politics and the scientific community.

The event will be co-hosted by the Reporters Without Borders (RSF Germany) and Media in Cooperation and Transition (MiCT).

It will take place at the Permanent Representation of the State of Sachsen-Anhalt (Vertretung des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt beim Bund),
Luisenstraße 18, 10117 Berlin.

An evening reception will be held afterwards at MiCT’s office, Brunnenstr. 9, 10119 Berlin.
