Broadcast Journalism: New and Traditional Media
May 18, 2016 - May 23, 2016
A core element of U.S. foreign policy is to encourage a free and responsible press that allows a well-informed citizenry to hold governments and institutions accountable. Increasingly, world populations turn to broadcast journalism for their news sources. This project for six broadcast journalists will examine the history, structure, and function of broadcasting in Cleveland, as well as the United States as a whole. It will address the influence of radio, television, cable, and new technologies in a pluralistic, decentralized society.
The Cleveland Council on World Affairs will host participants from Bulgaria, Burma, Egypt, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Morocco who are here to explore the role of the media, including social media, in supporting democratic institutions and promoting community development. The program will also highlight the American philosophical and legal commitments to freedom of expression.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at email@example.com or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
