JOURNALISM’S FUTURE

The only certainty from this debate is the uncertainty embedded in journalism’s future. It’s a profession considered noble by its practitioners, those who strive for freedom of expression and thought and the right of the public to know what goes on around them.

On its 90th Anniversary, the Foreign Press Association in Switzerland and Liechtenstein (APES) presents a succinct summary of a two-hour debate, condensed into 15 minutes. Each of the six speakers is a professional veteran and their key point is included with cogent arguments about their craft.

The debate was held at the University of Geneva on 28 February 2019 (APES org.), with Christian Campiche (Impressum/Switzerland), Jamil Chade (O Estado de Sao Paulo/Brazil), Daniel Cornu (Tamedia Romandie/Switzerland), Renske Heddema (Netherlands press), Peter Kenny (South African journalist and APES vice-president), Brij Khindaria (Business India/India) — and Moderator : Jean Musy (Radio Zones/France and APES president).
