DW Global Media Forum: “Shifting Powers.” on May 27-28, 2019

by: Category: Recent Updates Leave a comment A+ / A-



The global power balance is swiftly changing, creating both challenges and new opportunities for the media. Join us for the 12th annual DW Global Media Forum in Bonn to discuss these “Shifting Powers.”

Our world order has become unstable. We are witnessing an increasing rejection of the global norms and values designed to safeguard lasting peace. Above all, the principle of multilateralism and its security policies based on international cooperation are slowly being eroded.

Instead, inflated national egos and unilateral policies are taking center-stage, along with growing populism and widespread restrictions on human rights. The powerful nations of the world are shifting their economic and military strength towards new political alliances and constellations.

Meanwhile, people in many countries are losing their trust in international institutions and democratic systems with all that their regulatory mechanisms entail. The forces of social discord are threatening social cohesion everywhere.

The role of media in an age of shifting powers

The media and social networks not only report on these developments, but are themselves agents of this global shift in values and political power. Media policy increasingly is becoming part of national and international politics. We are already witnessing how a tweet can change the world; inflaming or calming foreign policy and driving or blocking the global economy.

What consequences will this have for the media? How will newsmakers uphold standards of objectivity in this climate and provide a sense of direction for their audiences? Will the prevalence of algorithms and the continuous emergence of more and more echo chambers lead to further disinformation, in turn fueling the forces of populism and nationalism? How do these shifts in power affect the norms that dominate global politics? How do the media, politics, civil society, culture, science and business interact in this age of “shifting powers”?

The Global Media Forum 2019 will explore the impact of shifting power structures on the international media landscape and evaluate opportunities and challenges arising from digitalization and what influence that will have on trans-national communication.   Courtesy DW
