Milton Wolf Seminar

Location: 
Vienna Austria
Date: 
Wednesday, March 23, 2011 - 12:00 - Friday, March 25, 2011 - 12:00

This seminar is organized by the American Austrian Foundation and will bring together a diverse group of individuals representing multiple perspectives and nationalities. Panelists include distinguished print and television journalists, media development practitioners, diplomats, and academics. This year's theme is Picking Up the Pieces: Fragmented Sovereignties and Emerging Information Flows. The purpose of the seminar is three-fold:

1. To identify how different actors attempt to influence the domestic media and communications landscapes of closed and transitional states in service of diplomatic and/or development goals
2. To investigate the implications of rapid changes in the available communication technologies for these efforts, and
3. To bring together students, scholars and practitioners from around the world to participate in seminars and break out sessions designed to identify current problems and possible solutions to the challenges raised by these activities.

IMP is sending a panel of Iran scholars and practitioners to participate in this seminar.
