2nd Session DC - Changing Societies, Changing Journalism

2nd Session DC – Changing Societies, Changing Journalism

 

Journalism is facing big challenges. Technology, internet, social changes, and other factors are bringing many questions to what and how is going to be the future of journalism. Is journalism still important? What’s the role of journalism in a networked society? Are people still interested in what journalists have to tell them? Do they trust journalism as a good source of information? Are there new paths for journalism? Is journalism still considered the 4th power?

For example, cases like Wikileaks, the Snowden case, and even more recent LuxLeaks, brought to discussion whistleblowing and its new ways. Technology, transparency and globalization are key words in this new framework.

Discussing journalists role in this framework is of great importance, because the relation between whistleblowers and journalists is changing.

The session will be moderated by Gustavo Cardoso, Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology, University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL).

Special speakers will join us in DC Lisbon: Luis de Sousa, TIAC РTransparência e Integridade, Associação Cívica, João Paulo Pardal, TIAC РTransparência e Integridade, Associação Cívica, and Micael Pereira, Journalist at Expresso.

Other participants will join us in DC Novi Pazar and DC Rio de Janeiro.
