In partnership with UNESCO, the Forum will ask penetrating questions about the future of Arab media from both editorial and business perspectives. Our speakers include some of the most prominent players from the regional and international media and freedom of expression communities, with a programme designed to explore the present situation and future needs of the independent Arab press.
