Learning and living together - the role of schools of journalism

Education and the media are key factors for change and development in today's society. In April 2005, an ETF seminar kick-started a renewed dialogue between education and training providers and the media with the aim of establishing “a partnership for progress” between the EU and its neighbouring countries. The participants at the seminar agreed on a list of recommendations for further action. A clear priority was to look at how journalism schools and training have an impact on the media's ability to contribute to mutual understanding between countries and regions. Action was taken on 5 December 2006 at the seminar “Learning and living together – the role of Schools of Journalism” in Budapest, Hungary. This publication is a summary of that seminar. It touches on a number of issues discussed throughout the day and gives a number of recommendations. It will also provide input for further action to be taken by the Euromed and the Media initiative and its task force from 2007 onwards.
