NGOs and Journalism: a good combination? 1

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?

In other hand, NGOs are increasingly became significant players as information intermediaries, working in cooperation with traditional news organizations, or even taking their place, says an investigation from the Center for Global Communication Studies. For example, there were several entries for ONGs for the last edition of Global Editors Network’s Data Journalism awards. What are the questions being raised by this «tendency»? The rising of advocacy journalism is here to stay? What kind of issues does this bring to journalism?

 

First session on "Censorship in a global and changing world: religion, politics and economics".

April: Welcoming Novi Pazar and Evora, and much more! 0 Reply

April was an special month for Dialogue Cafe Network.

 

Session on Integration of Minorities, 27 April 2'15

Session on Integration of Minorities, 27 April 2’15

 

April was an important month for Dialogue Cafe Network because DC Novi Pazar (Serbia) and DC Évora (Portugal) joined us and strengthened our global dimension.

Dialogue Cafe has now more than 2000 friends on facebook, a very important achievement for our network. We are very grateful for this support.

The cycle of sessions on changing journalism, changing societies was lauched and we talked about journalism and censorship nowadays (24 April), an important issue if we take into account the findings of the last world press freedom index published by Reporters Without Borders.

Dialogue Cafe also shared initiatives on how to better integrate minorities, in particular the roma community and improve community cohesion (27 April), a common challenge our societies face around the world.

Moreover, in partnersip with the Association Sorrir (Portugal) we smiled and talked about happiness to celebrate the International Day of Smile (28 April). A follow-up training will be developed during the second semester in order to organise a DC Smile Dance.

Changing societies, changing journalism: A global discussion on the future of journalism. 0 Reply

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? These are all important questions that need to be discussed. This discussion has to get out of the academic level and come into the civil society. In a global world there is also a need to discuss it in various contexts and countries, bringing people together in their diversity. The future of journalism is being shaped right now, all over the world.

With the aim of discussing the future of journalism, a cycle of sessions named “Changing societies, changing journalism: a global discussion on the future of journalism” is being organised by the University Institute of Lisbon ISCTE – IUL (Portugal) and the Dialogue Cafe Association.

The aims of this cycle are to create awareness about journalism and the changes the profession is going through and its impact in society in particular and in general, to put journalists, journalism students, academics and the civil society talking about journalism and its challenges as well as to share ideas, case studies and experiences with people from other countries about this subject, so that we can profit from diversity. At the end of the cycle the most important outcomes will be compiled and shared with participants and people interested.

First session on "Censorship in a global and changing world: religion, politics and economics".

Censorship in a global and changing world: religion, politics and economics. 0 Reply

Challenges journalists face are somehow the same as ever, but they have also changed. Censorship is still a very important issue, but its forms changed. And sometimes they are not clear. That’s why is important to talk about it. In the 21st century censorship exists in various forms. What are they, and what consequences do they bring to journalism and societies in general? These are all important questions that need to be discussed.
