The act of violence in Turku on Friday 18 August raised a question on how to report news without promoting xenophobia. This question and many more were debated in panel discussion in NordMedia 2017 conference.
The panel discussion ”Media scholars facing global challenges – advocators or outsiders” provoked a spirited discussion among the panelists in NordMedia 2017 conference. Topics varied from terrorism to gender and from global warming to the possible existence of global media.
“There is always a certain degree of uncertainty, which should be also present in reporting and media coverage”, the chair of the panel, Professor Heikki Hiilamo commented on the topics of the conversation.
