Programme of Donbas Media Forum 2017

Donbas in Media: from Populism to Facts 

June 28-29, 2017, Svyatohirsk, Zeleny Hay Hotel, Kurortna str. 13

The Donbas becomes a reason for political populism which interferes with journalism as the prism this or that broadcaster chooses influences the way the audience perceives the content. This is the reason why the level of trust to Ukrainian media is low in the region. The standards of highlighting conflict-sensitive issues are violated. Psychological traumas of journalists themselves also influence the content quality. To overcome these problems, we are planning to discuss the following themes within the framework of the Forum: 1) political populism or journalism standards; 2) increasing the efficiency of the Donbas media agencies (management, involving resources, new technologies, variety of the content); 3) conflict-sensitive journalism in times of crisis.
