Poor quoting and biases in international reporting endanger our view of the world. Do we learn what is really important? Do we understand, what is really going on?

In a global world, it is more important then ever to have reliable reportings of events or political changes. Where are conflicts and what are the reasons for it. What could solutions look like? Who is responsible and why? International reporters are our eyes and ears to the world. Therefore it is very important that their reporting is accurate, fair and balanced. We think it is necessary to talk about the quality in international reporting. What do we need to change? How can we overcome biases and inaccuracies?

This event takes place together with CORRECTIV and journalist.
