Photojournalists, war correspondents and investigative journalists meet at the 2nd conference on journalism, communication and international cooperation
Following the success of the first edition and taking the need to continue delving into the approach to international conflicts through communication and journalism into account, Yuste Foundation along with the Extremaduran International Cooperation Agency for Development and the University of Extremadura, have organised the 2nd conference entitled “Revealing Conflicts. Journalism, Communication and International Cooperation”, to be held on 1 and 2 March at the Faculty of Library and Documentation in Badajoz, although they can also be followed online. The conference is led by the Extremaduran reporter Ángel Sastre. (08/02/2023)
The media play a fundamental role in understanding and analysing the challenges facing society at global level; their role is, therefore, paramount in establishing strategies for international cooperation, making injustices and threats to human rights visible. Consequently, the main objective of the conference is to promote a citizenship that is committed to promoting peace and building more just and supportive societies.
The programme counts with the participation of professionals from the field of communication, photojournalism, war reporting and investigative journalism, who will transfer their experience on how information that serves to analyse issues such as the dangers facing the planet, the war in Ukraine, the rescue work of the NGO Proactiva Open Arms, the humanitarian crises resulting from armed, political or social conflicts, as well as the silenced reality of the African continent is transmitted. Some of the speakers are Santi Palacios, Óscar Camps and Lucía Rodríguez.
The conference is part of the INNCODE project, an initiative that resulted from the collaboration between the Cooperation and Solidarity Action Office of the University of Extremadura and the Extremaduran International Cooperation Agency for Development of the Regional Government of Extremadura. It also counts with the collaboration of the Vice-Rectorate for Students, Employment and Mobility and the Faculty of Documentation and Communication Sciences in Badajoz, where the conference will be taking place.
The conference has an official recognition of the University of Extremadura of 0.5 free choice credits for all those attending in person and online who meet 80% of attendance.
