Official Side-Event at the Council of Europe

We were honoured to present for the second year in a row at an official side-event of the fall 2017 session of the Council of Europe's parliamentary assembly, in Strasbourg, France. 

We extend our thanks to Ms. Elvira Drobinski-Weiss and Dr. Bernd Fabritius, members of the German delegation to the assembly, for hosting the event, and to Mr. Dieter Boden, former OSCE head of mission and special envoy of the UN Secretary General to Georgia, for speaking in support of the ADAMI initiative.

Five recipients of the 2016 ADAMI Media Prize screened their winning films to parliamentarians at the Council of Europe, and talked about the situation in their countries, ranging from youth migration, the perception of minorities in the media, conflict resolution, and foreigners' ability to own lands.

The journalists were also invited for a special tour of French-German cultural channel Arte, and discussed how Arte is covering current events about migration with the head of Arte Reportage, and were also introduced to current trends in the development of 360 degree television.
