Diversity as Means to Unity PDF Print

Date: 21 June 2013

Country: Morocco, Rabat

rabat conference 2MDI Moroccan stakeholders, policy makers, media actors, media educators and civil society representatives gathered in Rabat to define the concept of diversity in the country’s current political, social and cultural context.

They have gathered at the conference “Media diversity: For professional journalistic practices that reflect the reality and the richness of the Moroccan Society”, organized jointly by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) and its partner National Union of the Moroccan Press.
