The World Bank and the The Dialogue are pleased to host the event: "Media Forum on Freedom of the Press and Digital Transformation in Latin America." The event will take place over two days: from 5:00 to 8:30 PM at the World Bank (Building C, 1225 Connecticut Ave NW, room C2 - 100) on Thursday, June 26th. The forum will continue the following day at National Public Radio (1111 North Capitol St NE) from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM.
Public media has been in the spotlight of Latin America over the past years. Issues of press freedom and media pluralism have assumed priority in much of the region’s agenda, with countries trying to pass ambitious reforms in order to increase media access for their citizens. At the same time, as information becomes more digital across the globe, Latin America is witnessing an important transformation from print to electronic media.
The forum will consist of panels and presentations featuring experts from all across the region who will discuss media regulations, press freedom, and digital journalism among other important issues. Below you can find a detailed schedule of the event.
