Amman, Jordan

In the framework of the analysis work on Intercultural Trends coordinated by the Anna Lindh Foundation and following the publication of the Anna Lindh Report 2018 on Intercultural Trends and Social Change in the Euro-Mediterranean Region, the Anna Lindh Foundation and Union of the Mediterranean Universities (UNIMED) convene the first Intercultural Trends and Media Platform workshop on cross-cultural and gender sensitive reporting in the EuroMed region. The workshop will take place on 10 and 11 September in Amman, Jordan.
The workshop brings together media, academia and civil society to debate on the way perceptions between Europeans and Southern and Eastern Mediterranean people have evolved in the recent years as a result of the growing migratory and refugee movements, the rise of populists discourses and phenomena of violent extremism. Organised in the framework of the Euromed Women for Dialogue Forum (Amman, 11 and 12 September), the coverage of gender related issues in the media will be taken as an indicator to debate of existing cultural stereotypes and good practices in the field.
The Amman workshop is the first of a series of thematic encounters which aims at establishing a strong
Euro-Mediterranean network of media, civil society and academic organisations who can define a strategy for the promotion of exchanges and analyses about the coverage of relevant social and political events in the region with a view to fight cultural stereotypes.
