*Fome Symposium 2021Believe it or Not! Enquiries about TRUST in media
(assistance)18th-19th November 2021*
im FAZ Atrium (and online), Mittelstrasse 2-4, 10117 Berlin

Why is trust in media eroding (is it?), and why do people watch news they
do not trust? How is trust in media affected by insecurity and fragile
statehood, by crisis, transformation or authoritarian rule? What about
healthy media scepticism - isn't that what we need most?

For years, distrust in the media has been on the rise due to increased
economic competition between media channels and the subsequent ‘race to the
bottom’ to snag clicks and advertisers. During the past two years, the
question of TRUST IN MEDIA has gained even more significance all over the
world as the Corona pandemic tests the resilience to crises of media and
audiences alike. Journalists struggle with the fast pace of events, with
statistical riddles and a lack of expert knowledge. Partisanship and media
polarization are undermining the role of media as reliable source of

The Forum Media and Development (fome) is dedicating it´s 2021 Symposium to
the question of TRUST IN MEDIA. The conference will shed light on how armed
conflict, fragile statehood or authoritarian rule is affecting media
perception and trust in media in the Global South. Fome21 will further
discuss the role of media assistance in restoring trust and how issues with
trust play a role among stakeholders in media assistance programs.

Fome21 is organized by *Media in Cooperation and Transition (MiCT)* in
partnership with and financed by the *Konrad Adenauer Stiftung *with
additional support provided by the German Federal Foreign Office and the
Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
