[VIRTUAL] Global Media: Navigating New and Emerging Threats to Press Freedom

Monday, May 13
1:00 - 2:15 PM CST

Global Voices Programs

As 2024 remains on track to be one of the biggest global election years in history, independent media is under attack like never before. Malign influence, propaganda, and misinformation are being used to undermine fact-based news coverage, and it’s growing increasingly challenging for independent media organizations to reach audiences seeking credible, unbiased coverage about the world around them.

How do global news organizations build trust among audiences as the world is flooded with propaganda, misinformation, and disinformation? How can they circumvent censorship to deliver factual news and information to those living in the most restrictive media environments? How do they support and protect journalists who are targeted for simply doing their jobs?

Join us for a virtual conversation with U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO, Amanda Bennett, where she will dive into these very questions, and discuss new and emerging challenges to global press freedom. Ms. Bennett will be in conversation with Leila Brammer, Director of Outreach and Instructional Development, Parrhesia Program for Public Discourse, University of Chicago, and Pedro Huet Lopez, Master’s in Public Policy (MPP) student, Harris School of Public Policy, and International House Graduate Fellow, University of Chicago.
