Aspen Institute Prague in cooperation with the FORUM 2000 Conference presented an open panel discussion
Media (R)evolution: Media Changes in Central Europe
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 14:15, Knight’s Hall, Žofín Palace in Prague.
Working language: English.
In times of major digital innovations, media seems to be one of the most dynamic industries in the public arena. Some experts compare the evolution of the digital format and its accessibility through mobile devices to the invention of the printing press. The Central European region has been developing quite rapidly in regards to this changing landscape, as various political developments have altered the role of media and its perception in society. Do the media in Central Europe keep pace with the cutting edge of digital innovations? How have the media in Central Europe contributed to the consolidation of democracy?
