Scarcity or inadequacy of public service media (PSM) frameworks is often 
linked to democratic deficits in transitional countries and beyond. What 
measures are needed to make the media serve all sections of society? PSM 
are by definition intended to meet the challenge of social and cultural 
diversity and political pluralism, in terms of content provision and 
coverage. In a period of political upheaval in several African 
countries, clampdowns on journalism in parts of the Arab world and 
recent rapid changes in demographics in Europe following large-scale 
forced migration, this event examines efforts and initiatives to support 
PSM in new environments and the obstacles they face. Bringing together 
academics, policy-makers, civil society and industry, this short 
workshop will reflect on specific examples of how and where models of 
PSM have contributed to media development in countries of the Global 
North and Global South. It will look in particular into:

Political changes in Zimbabwe, how they impacted upon the PSM dimension 
and the need for urgent reforms; openings in Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia 
and Lebanon that could increase the effectiveness of promoting PSM;
how PSM in Europe have responded to the information needs of young 
European-born children and those from outside Europe who have recently 
arrived.

Speakers:
Mr James Deane, Director of Policy and Research, BBC Media Action
Dr Pierre François Docquir, Head of Media Freedom, ARTICLE 19
Prof Naomi Sakr, former Director of CAMRI Arab Media Centre, University 
of Westminster
Dr Tarik Sabry, Director of CAMRI Arab Media Centre, University of 
Westminster
Dr Winston Mano, Director of CAMRI Africa Media Centre, University of 
Westminster

The debate will be chaired by Prof. Jean Seaton, the Official Historian 
of the BBC and Professor of Media History, CAMRI, University of Westminster

Date and Time:

18 June 2019 (please note that the initial date of this event has changed)
16:30 – 18:00 panel debate and discussion with the audience;
18:00 – 19:30 networking drinks reception.

We look forward to welcoming you to this event!
