11/12/2019 - 12/12/2019

Since 2011, CFI, the French media development agency and a subsidiary of France Médias Monde, has been running a series of international forums (Montpellier, Tunis, Belgrade, Abidjan, Cairo, Nairobi, Tbilisi, Jakarta, Beirut, Paris) designed to connect media actors from Africa to Asia and to enable them to share their experiences, often characterised by challenging contexts.

This year’s CFI Forum, taking place in Paris, explores whether or not we are asking too much of the media, considering expectations for media to facilitate social cohesion, youth inclusion, post-conflict reconciliation, supporting democratic transitions,  and explaining climate change.

By exploring this question, the Forum aims to:
• Share innovating experiences across countries
• Move from virtual to real meetings
• Share good and bad practice
• Support media development

The Forum will focus on three main themes over the course of two days:

  1. Should the media be feminist?
  2. Can we combat fake news?
  3. Is it still possible and desirable to measure the impact of the media?

The event will take place from December 11-12, 2019. More information is available here.
