Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2009
3-5 June 2009, Bonn, Deutschland/Germany
New workshop with distinguished speakers by ICT4peace: „Getting to better crisis management/peacekeeping operations: How can information be shared and communication improved?“
Conflict prevention in the multimedia-age
Opportunities and challenges posed by new technologies and consumer habits
Digitalization, on-demand services, blogs and Web 2.0: The world of multimedia is in transition. The second Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum will primarily highlight the rapid technological development in the world of media and debate the ensuing questions related to modified usage.
In light of these changes, the conference will examine the future of content delivery, especially for topics pertaining to peace and security.
Do the changes in technology and user profiles influence the way in which the media report on conflicts – or do they directly influence the way in which a war is fought? What about the impact on peace-building processes and conflict prevention strategies? What are the main challenges for the international media during this technological revolution? How have the expectations of viewers, listeners and users changed, and what is the best way to reach them in the digital age?
Deutsche Welle’s Global Media Forum 2009 will bring together media users and producers, peace building and conflict prevention specialists, representatives from the fields of media technology and security, public relations, the military, the arms industry as well as members of government and political parties to network and discuss the challenges and solutions for the future.
