Working with partners at the Global Media Forum
Our teams from both International Marketing and Sales worked with partners to help design some of this year’s panels at the DW Global Media Forum.
International Marketing worked with the University of Passau to help coordinate the panel looking at “International economic cooperation, human rights and the media – Business journalism as an early warning system”. Around 80 conference guests took part in the discussion, which examined how journalists in China, North Africa and Russia can act as a warning system.
Our Sales team responsible for the Americas also help organize the panel titled “Woman and human rights – Giving a voice to the voiceless”, which brought together a range of noteworthy women’s rights activists from Latin America – including Enriqueta Estela Barnes de Carlotto from the Association of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo.
Here is the full schedule of events for the Global Media Forum on Tuesday and Wednesday.

DW and RNW intensify cooperation
Deutsche Welle (DW) and Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday, June 1 in Berlin, outlining intensified cooperation in the future on Chinese, Indonesian and Arabic radio programming. Director General Erik Bettermann signed for Germany’s international broadcaster alongside Director General Jan Hoek from The Netherlands.
Bettermann said that this agreement symbolizes a “historical moment”. Bettermann added that it is important to both broadcasters – especially with regards to the historical experiences in both countries – to work in the heart of Europe to solidify their shared values such as freedom of the press, human rights and democracy around the world.
Hoek pointed out that free access to information is an especially important good. DW and RNW will be focusing their cooperation on Chinese, Indonesian and Arabic programming. The two will exchange links to each other’s websites and use cross promotion in their programming. New forms of cooperation should also be developed in the future. The cooperation should also be expanded to distribution. The goal is to reach each of the target audiences better.
