The EU-funded MedMedia programme, in partnership with the Permanent Conference of Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators (COPEAM), organised this week its final workshop for public service broadcasters in the Southern Mediterranean Region.

Held in Tunis on April 23-24, the event marked the end of a four-year multi-layered peer-to-peer exchange programme aimed at helping national broadcasters continue transition to a more public service orientated broadcasting.

Representing seven public broadcasters in the region, including Moroccan Soread-2M, Algerian Television (EPTV) and Radio (ENRS), Tunisian El Watanya and Radio (RNT), al Mamlaka in Jordan and Radio Liban, participants devised strategies to strengthen public service broadcasting principles internally and expand broadcasters’ editorial independence in the short to medium terms.

“There is consensus in the region that national broadcasters should uphold public service values, but each one must develop its own model, programming, policies and funding, depending on the specific constraints of its political, social and historical environment “said Rita Noujaim, Programming Director at Radio Lebanon.
