Forty leading journalists from the Arab World, Europe, Indonesia, Pakistan and the United States will participate in a conference titled Freedom of Expression in the Digital Age, and organized by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ). Supported by the United Nations’ Alliance of Civilizations, the conference will take place February 15-17, in Alexandria, Egypt.

Held at the New Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the city’s national library, the conference will be held on the historic eastern harbor of Alexandria.

The conference will address important topics such as reporting on religion, freedom of expression and how media can promote dialogue between different cultures. It will also offer hands-on workshops on digital innovation and writing high-quality blogs and opinion pieces.

This program is made possible thanks to generous support from:

    While I am all praise for the conference, I cannot understand how could not a single journalist be included to represent his/her colleagues from the Central Asian states and Turkey . . . Media in Central Asia is far from free and journalists there would be better off using cyberspace for expression and disseminating information while Turkish people have already left significant mark on blog0sphere . . . Similarly a couple of journalist from South America and Oceania could have also broadened the perspective . . . Great speakers and contents indeed . . .
