11:30am EDT

Funders’ roundtable: Investing in the future of independent journalism
How can we expand the spectrum of capital available to support high-quality media as a public good?

As news outlets rethink business models and threats to press freedom multiply, what can media funders learn from the world of impact investment? Is it possible to balance financial returns with the social good of safeguarding a robust and independent media ecosystem? Or is the entire premise a mirage, destined to disappoint as it creates unrealistic expectations of commercial viability in places hostile to media pluralism?

This roundtable is co-organised by the International Press Institute, the Global Forum for Media Development, and Media Impact Funders.

The event will bring together philanthropic foundations and other media funders with impact investors, media development experts, regional accelerators, media builders and journalists.

In-person participation is by invitation only.

Ending impunity for the killing of journalists: Alternative paths to justice?
For the past decade, as unsolved killings of journalists remain staggeringly high, some trends have become clear: state protection mechanisms are largely ineffective, prosecutions depend on a functioning rule of law and judiciary, and the media, NGOs, and even family members often do much of the investigative work.
At a time of shrinking democracies, how do we achieve justice? How do we deter killings?

Presented in partnership with The Committee to Protect Journalists

Digital misogyny vs. pluralistic media: Responding to gendered disinformation and online harassment of women journalists
Co-organised in partnership with the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media.

Gender-specific and sexualized campaigns capitalizing on biased gender narratives and exploiting misogyny not only defame women journalists, discredit their personal and professional reputation, but also reinforce harmful stereotypes and hate. Such online abuse is typically aimed at denying women a public voice and silencing them individually, especially those with intersectional identities, as well as at avoiding scrutiny and undermining public trust in fact-based journalism.

In this roundtable, organized by the OSCE RFoM, we will identify steps to address gendered disinformation against journalists and its detrimental impact on media pluralism and information spaces.
