The Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum : “Human Rights in a Globalized World. Challenges for the Media” is a congress with international reach. It draws media representatives from around the world – including many of Deutsche Welle’s partners – and people from the fields of politics, culture, business, development cooperation and science. In their interdisciplinary exchanges they design approaches to meeting the challenges of globalization in which the media plays a central role.
