  • European Seminar
  • What Journalism for Another Europe?

  • Association Culturelle Joseph Jacquemotte (ACJJ) in partnership with transfom! and the participation of European pole of IHECS invite you to a European seminar.

    Access to information has never been easier than today. With internet and social media, the European citizen can access to a large amount of information on the European Union and communicate directly with the institutions.

    Paradoxically, the gap continues to widen between the European institutions and citizens. The democratic deficit in the EU seems amplified by a lack of information regarding the issues of European power. This gap is highly detrimental for citizens because a large part of the social, political and economic issues are decided at the European level.

    On this basis, the objective of this seminar is to share different experiences of journalism and different national perspectives on the European information to identify leads on how the media can:

    • put into perspective the European decisions with local and national issues;
    • give citizens the key reading for understanding European political issues;
    • engaging citizens knowingly in a European public debate
