What role do the media play in intercultural dialogue? Are they troublemakers or facilitators? What responsibilities do journalists

have in a globalized world? What impact does the Internet in general and the interactive formats known as “Web 2.0”

in particular have on journalism ethics and quality journalism? These questions and more will be discussed at the

conference. For details see the attached program. The conference will be conducted in English.

We are fortunate to have some very renowned media professionals and experts in intercultural dialogue as speakers at this

conference. At the opening session, Abdelbari Atwan, Editor-in-Chief of the London based newspaper Al Quds Al Arabi and

Michael Slackman, the Berlin Bureau Chief for the New York Times will meet for a debate.

The recent media-related findings of the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation on “Cross-cultural relations in the

Mediterranean” will be presented by André Azoulay, President of the Foundation and Counselor to HM the King of Morocco.

We expect about 300 high-ranking delegates and representatives from international and German media, think tanks, crossculture

organizations, German and international foundations and renowned NGOs to attend. The conference is held under

the auspices of the German Federal Foreign Office and organized in cooperation with Deutsche Welle. The Internet portal is a concerted effort by the Federal Center for Political Education, Deutsche Welle, the Goethe-Institut and the

Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations to promote dialogue with the Islamic world. It is funded by the German Federal

Foreign Office.
