The Silent Takeover - Media Capture in the 21st Century
FoME Symposium 2018
November 22-23
Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Berlin
Hosted by FES, MiCT & Reporters Without Borders

The era of censorship is not over, but governments no longer need to
openly exert their power over media in forms of censorship or force.

The Silent Takeover of the media in the 21st century comes through the
backdoor. Supportive and subtle rather than repressive forms of
political and business-related intervention in the media sector seem to
become the method of choice.
Our 2018 FoME Symposium
( https://fome.info/)  puts the complex triangle of “Politics – Private
Interests – Media” at the center of debate. 

On November 22nd and 23rd, about 100 media experts from around the
world will get together on the premises of Friedrich Ebert Stiftung
Berlin to assess the state of Media Capture in the 21st Century. 
We will discuss which factors foster what academic literature calls
Media Capture, to what extent this expanding strategy influences
democracy, pluralism and freedom of the press and how to prevent “The
Silent Takeover” of the free media. This takeover can have many
different faces: media can be founded, owned, financed, supported and/or
operated by actors with political interests.

At FoME 2018 we will analyze the different shapes Media Capture can
take and discuss solutions in a number of sessions ranging from panel
discussions to hands-on workshops. 

The symposium is organized and hosted by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES)
in cooperation with Reporter Without Borders (RSF Germany) and Media in
Cooperation and Transition (MiCT). The Forum Media and Development
(FoME) is an initiative of 20 organizations from German-speaking
countries active in international media development, including Deutsche
Welle Akademie, GIZ, Reporters Without Borders, MiCT, ECPMF,
Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit,
IDEM, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, CAMECO and others.
