The Romanian-German Mass-Media Days will be organised in Bucharest, for the third time, by the Federal Republic of Germany’s embassy, in cooperation with Deutsche Welle, with the purpose of bringing together representatives of Romanian mass-media and German mass-media to exchange ideas and experience and to discuss joint challenges but also specific national challenges.
The title of this year’s conference is: “Politics and Mass-media: Opponents or Partners.” The event will take place on Wednesday, November 16, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest, and will be opened by German Ambassador Werner Hans Lauk (photo) and by Deutsche Welle’s Robert Schwartz.
The conference seeks to occasion an exchange of ideas and experience between the representatives of Romanian mass-media and German mass-media, to tackle joint challenges as well as specific national challenges.
The Romanian-German Mass-Media Days 2016 is taking place under the motto: “Politics and Mass-media: Opponents or Partners?”
The conference consists of two panels, each featuring a keynote speech offered by the Romanian and the German guests. They will be followed by a round of talks with the participants, centred on the Romanian-German exchange of experience.
