Mekong Media Conference Coming in December
Mekong Media Forum, organised by Inter Press Service Asia-Pacific and Probe Media Foundation Inc, will be held on Dec. 9-12, 2009, in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
How have economic integration and openness shaped the media
environment in the Mekong region? What do audiences expect in the age
of more openness? What changes in press laws and access to information
have taken place in the last 15 years?
These are just some of the questions to be discussed and debated at
the Mekong Media Forum, to be held at the Holiday Inn in Chiang Mai,
Thailand on Dec. 9-12, 2009.
The conference will gather Mekong journalists, policymakers, civil
society and others to discuss the state of media, as well as exchange
ideas and experiences against the backdrop of media as an actor of
social change. It will feature a mix of panel discussions, film
showings, photo exhibits and visual presentations, book and DVD
The Forum is being organised by Inter Press Service Asia-Pacific news
agency (www.ipsnewsasia.net) and Probe Media Foundation
(www.probefound.com) with major support from The Rockefeller Foundation and MDG3 Fund.
