Is the Bulgarian Media European?

19.05.08 | Events

At 10.00 a.m. on May 20th (Tuesday), a debate on a topic formulated by Darik Radio in response to the interest of a target population in the region - "Is the Bulgarian media European?," will take place in the building of the Burgas Free University.

Students from the Faculty of Journalism at the Burgas Free University will take part in the debate. Representatives of the local authorities, Bulgarian MEPs, members of SEM, the journalist Ivan Bedrov and the Romanian investigating journalist George Buhnich, as well as media experts, have all been invited to the event.

The aspects that will be discussed are:

  • The role of journalists when creating the image of Bulgaria in Europe;
  • What Europeans think of Bulgaria when they read the Bulgarian media.

Special subtopic will be the changes in the criminal code for usage of hidden camera during investigation of law abuse.

As the next step of the initiative, the team of the project plans to summarize the questions and answers of the two debates, to publish and distribute them including on the internet. Darik Radio will broadcast radio debates on the subject, in which participants will be the representatives of the target population.
