Promoting a diverse, inclusive and accurate media

Media Diversity Institute (MDI) works internationally to encourage accurate and nuanced reporting on race, religion, ethnic, class, disability, gender and sexual identity issues in media landscapes around the world. While our work is grounded in the principles of freedom of expression and values of diversity and inclusion, our day-to-day work focuses on cultivating practical skills to combat negative stereotypes and disinformation and improve media and information literacy.

EU-funded MEDIAdelcom final conference

This event hosted by MDI Global on 15 February 2024 marked the conclusion of the three-year MEDIAdelcom project - the most comprehensive study of its kind in Europe, identifying the risks and opportunities for deliberative communication in today's polarised Europe.

More than 80 people from around the world attended the conference and more than 331 viewers watched it online.

In the context of worlwide major elections, including within the European Union, this event was an important moment to focus on deliberative communication – a prerequisite of deliberative democracy.

Thank you all for making it a success!
