When Autocrats Attack: Independent Media Under Fire
French Translation
Friday, September 27
2:30 pm - 3:45 pm
Lecture Hall 200, HafenCity Universit├Ąt (HCU)



Independent media is under siege worldwide, part of a broad global assault on open societies and democratic institutions. Old tools of repression – financial pressure, legal harassment, violent attacks – are being used with a new arsenal of tools like trolling and digital disinformation.

In this session journalists working on the front lines of censorship and political pressure will give us their best strategies to cope with these threats.  

French translation for this session is provided by CFI, the French media development organization.
