BBC Diversity Plan Criticised PDF Print

Published: 4 July 2014

Country: UK

DIVERSITY_BBCThe BBC has recently announced new measures in order to improve the representation of the black, Asian and minority ethnic community. The BBC is ready to dedicate a £2.1m towards the diversity creative talent fund. But that is not enough, claims Lenny Henry, British comedian and a firm advocate for cultural diversity in the creative industry in the UK.

“It [BBC] has the greatest of intentions but with massive respect it is based on an old model that hasn’t worked. Increased training and increased development funds do not deliver change ... but jobs do,” Mr Henry commented. He added that, “Development [funding] is great but there are people absolutely trained and ready to rock”. Henry was criticising in his first reaction to the BBC announcement although he will be part of the independent challenge and advice group, a panel of respected experts, supporting the implementation of the new BBC measures.

Multi-stakeholder Dialogue on Security and Media in Tunisia PDF Print

Date: 25 June 2014

Country: Tunisia

Tunisia_-_Security_and_MediaBalancing fundamental human rights such as Freedom of Expression and Access to Information with responsibility and sensitivity in reporting on security issues presents a challenge for reporters in any society, let alone in a post-authoritarian, post-revolutionary, transitional Tunisia. This was one of the main points made at a roundtable entitled “Media Coverage of Security Issues during the Election Period”, organised in Tunis on 25 June.  The participants at the event included media and security experts, media and security service professionals, journalism educators, civil society representatives, as well as international experts.

The purpose of the discussion organised by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) was to create a confidential space for open and constructive dialogue between the key actors, so they have the opportunity to understand the perspectives and needs of the other parties, in particular ahead of the autumn elections in Tunisia.
