The translation was done on the basis of the full version of German Press Code approved by German Press Council on 13.03.2013.
The structure of the German press council has four members, two journalists associations and two publishers associations, who represent the majority of German newspapers and magazines. However, also newspapers who are not member of the publishers association will follow guidelines of the press council and publish their reprimands (official statement that the codex was violated) on certain articles.
In many OSCE-participating states conflict and crisis hamper and endanger an independant, accurate and objective journalism. Sometimes journalism even tends to sharpen conflicts. It´s difficult to recognize propaganda, hate-speech and different interests of conflict-parties. In addition the personal and digital security of journalists often is threatened.
These problems will be the main focus of the journalism Seminar of taz panter foundation, Reporters Without Borders and German Federal Foreign Office. 14 journalists from OSCE-participating states, especially from Central Asia, Middle and Eastern Europe and Russia will be invited to come to Berlin 29 May to 5 June 2016 to exchange their experience, discuss these issues and more.
The participants will meet journalists, politicians, public stakeholders and experts for international election observation. They will visit the German parliament. In the Federal Foreign Office they will meet representatives of the taskforce for the German OSCE-presidency 2016. They will learn about the German media landscape and exercise some techniques of conflict sensitive journalism. Participants will learn how to upgrade their personal and digital security.
