The EU and the Council of Europe (CoE) are organising a series of trainings for students and journalists on consumer rights and cultural stereotypes in media reporting. The trainings will take place on 20-23 April 2017 in Kakheti Region, Georgia. CoE experts will review the ethical and legal framework for ensuring the protection of online users’ rights, including their possible limitations and the available legal remedies.
The participants will learn about ethical standards and how to avoid or even counter cultural stereotypes in media reporting.
The events are organised within the framework of the joint CoE/EU Programmes “EU/CoE Joint Project Promoting freedom, professionalism and pluralism of the media” and “Protecting Internet Freedom through Legislation and Arrangements for Multi-stakeholder Dialogue”.
The projects aim to improve freedom, independence, pluralism and diversity of media, and to review media legislation and regulation to bring these in line with European standards.
