Local television, local wisdom, and media convergence (in Bahasa only)

Organizer: Indonesian Association of Local Television (Asosiasi Televisi Lokal Indonesia - ATVLI)
Venue: Merak Room II

Media convergence is the merging or integration of existing media to be used and directed into a destination point.The convergence of media usually refers to the development of digital communication technology made possible by network convergence. Media convergence occurs by looking at how people interact with others on a social level and use a variety of media platforms to create new experiences.
One phenomenon that appeared in the era of media convergence is the increasing penetration and the broadening range of content (news, information, entertainment) into the community life in Indonesia. Speed, easiness and interactive, which brought in an era of media convergence, open up wide possibilities for each person or group to receive, create, and distribute content.
Local televisions that emerge in the corners of the country and the existence of a very diverse local wisdom maintained in each area, will they have a new role, new position and new format of mutual influence, as a consequence of this phenomenon?

Media as important actors in promoting social inclusion through multi-platforms (in both English and Bahasa)

Organizer: ATVSI (Indonesian Private Television Association)
Venue: Merak Room III

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize the importance of public access to information and fundamental freedoms, which includes freedom of expression. This is under SDG 16, namely to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. This is a significant  recognition for  the roles of media because the SDGs provides guidance for countries’ actions in the next 15 years.
Media are important actors in promoting social inclusion because they promote dialog across different, even opposite perspectives. They also challenge stereotypes and misrepresentation. Public access to information has been fostered by  social media and digital innovation. People can easily update their information with their gadgets and trigger television industry to exist on the Internet or is known as Over The Top. Based on Ericsson Consumer Lab Annual Research (2016), more and more people watch TV and video-on-demand on their mobile device. Conventional TV market share keeps shrinking. On the other hand, video-on-demand increased 50% since 2009 and short video clips increased almost 90% since 2010.
In order to achieve an inclusive society facilitated by independent and pluralistic media and a safe media environment which allows the free flow information, UNESCO proposes four principles of Internet Universality. It is important that Internet governance follow the principles of Human Rights, Openness, Accessibility and Multi-stakeholder participation.
Panelists will discuss their broadcast journalism and production experiences in mainstream television, social media  and Over The Top

Professional Journalists against Hoax (in Bahasa only)

Organizer: Ikatan Jurnalis Televisi Indonesia (Indonesian Television Journalists Association)
Venue: Maleo Room

The trend of the spread of false news (hoax) through social media. An increase in the Hoax in line with circumstances and political conditions that occur at this time. Effective hoax used to hit a wide range of interests, including the performance of the Government. This condition occurs in conjunction with the continued rise of active internet users. Active internet users in Indonesia currently reaches 132 million. That amount is equal to 52 percent of the total population of Indonesia. From the number ofactive internet users in Indonesia, 129 million of whom are also active in using social media.
Hoax have become global issues not only in Indonesia. The presence of a professional journalist, by presenting the true preaching, according to facts and a balanced, became one of the ways to counteract the hoax. The rise of online media, it becomes a question of who encouraged hoax. Most sites that considers itself as the onlinemedia thus not following the rules in the Act the press. The Data from the Press Council, online media who really runs the journalistic rule in producing news numbers were not up to 500.
Professional journalism is becoming a necessity in the middle of the era of press freedom that took place at this time. The era of press freedom that is marked with the UU Pers No. 40/1999 not only set up spaces in the pattern of reporting the facts, but also the background of interest behind industry press. It cannot be denied a press institution will always be in harmony with the conglomeration of mainstream journalism, because it requires considerable capital, but still have to obey the rules and ethics.
When the public considers that the freedom of the press start polluted by capital strength or political power of financiers then public confidence will be eroded. These conditions encourage attitudes of choosing alternative sources of information. It is necessary to encourage and establish the role of mainstream journalists to keep the trust of the public.

Nowadays we are witnessing and experiencing the penetration of the cyber world in our everyday life. It spreads increasingly to the almost uncontrollable level. Cyber virtual world now seems to be a reality, and this phenomenon becomes possible due to the rapid development of ICT.
In the new landscape of communication, where everyone is becoming receiver and producer of information, various political and economical interests are intertwined and infiltrated the communication process. There is a great opportunity to everyone to make constructive and destructive information as well.
It is worthy to mention that in the new landscape of communication, various hoaxes can be easily distributed either accidentally or intentionally.
At the same time, the mainstream mass media looks anxious in confronting the latest development. The mainstream mass media, especially the Internet or cyber-based mass media, is trapped in a situation that makes it difficult to escape from the so-called trending topic produced massively by social media networking.
At the most extreme point, what exists now is a kind of competition in producing and disseminating false news that excludes all ethics and golden rules respected in the life of the press. Therefore fallacy is regarded as sensible.
This seminar is aiming to answer key questions to end the ruthless effect of new landscape of communication provided by the rapid development of the ICT.
In this seminar we promote the establishment of a common and massive movement among the journalist in fighting back the spread of hoaxes. At same time we also propose the empowering, throughout organizing, the cyber-based mass media as the key player in the new landscape of communication.

Media also should avoid being used as propaganda tools. In order to achieve it, it is important to promote ethical and professional standards in journalism. It is known as conflict-sensitive reporting which UNESCO has been promoting. Conflict-sensitive reporting provides root causes of a conflict, bridge an effective communication between contending parties and lead to a reconciliation.
How do panelists exercise ethical and professional journalism standard in covering conflicts and crisis? How do TV journalists  produce a program which help reconcile conflicting parties and eventually reach peace?

Freedom of the press in this era of media convergence (in Bahasa only)

Organizer: Ikatan Jurnalis Televisi Indonesia (Indonesian Television Journalists Association)
Venue: Maleo Room

Journalists currently enjoy freedom of the press at this time. But in the middle of the era of the kebabasan the press, critics emerged, one of which related how the quality of a journalist in the face of media convergence era but still can hold fast to the accuracy and credibility of the news. At the same time, other challenges facing tv journalist.
World broadcasting began to change along with the development of information and communication technology. The properties of conventional telecommunication technologies which are now capable of the massif are combined with computer technology that is interactive. The analog system that has survived so many years will soon be replaced by a digital system, and implementing it soon gave rise to a new phenomenon: the convergence. Simply put, convergence is combining the traditional telecommunication with internet media.
The convergence of media provides new opportunity for radical in the handling, processing, distribution and the provision of the entire form information in a visual, audio, data, and so on. Its effects. conventional journalistic strategy join experienced significant changes. The present journalists prosecuted capable and hastening delivery of information obtained and passed it on to the community.
The advancement of technology convergence advances have narrowed the distance and shorten the time. This led to a virtual community, and communication directly face to face doesn't interest me anymore. Convergent media led to the degree of massivitas of mass communication on the wane, as the more personal and interactive.Decreased social interaction directly lead to ineffective communication. It is as a challenge of the negative impact of media convergence where face to face is starting tonot demand any more, people are more likely to prefer communicating via the media. The consequence is the loss of social presence so that communication is not effective. Because it does not see and feel directly the facial expressions and body language a caller gives rise to misunderstandings of the contents of the message.

Consultative Roundtable on the Feasibility of a Special Mechanism for the Promotion & Protection of the Freedom of Expression & the Safety of Journalists in Southeast Asia (in English only)

Venue: Merak Room II

Southeast Asia is a diverse region geographically, politically, socially, economically and linguistically. The region as a whole, has made much advancement in many areas and lives of its people have seen improvement especially compared to a decade ago. However, the development of free, independent and pluralistic media in the region has been unequal. Where we see real progress for freedom of expression and a blossoming of diverse media, we also see restrictions, harassments and attacks against journalists, media workers and social media producers who engages in journalistic activities. According, to the latest UNESCO Director-General’s Report on the Safety of Journalist and the Danger of Impunity (2016), incidents of killings of journalists continue to happen in the region and at the same time, most cases remain unresolved. In Latin America, Africa, and the OSCE, regional mechanisms designed to promote, monitor, and protect freedom of expression especially concerning media freedom and safety of journalists have been established. Noticeably, there is an absence of an independent regional authoritative entity that serves to strengthen, monitor and protect the fundamental human rights of freedom of expression including its corollary of access to information, press freedom and safety of journalists. The creation of such a mechanism, whether in the form of a Special Rapporteur, a commission, or another modality, would have a positive impact on overall development of a free, independent and pluralistic media landscape, in line with international standards. Therefore, the proposed consultative roundtable is to deliberate, explore, and ‘brain storm’ on the feasibility of this idea. The topics of discussion include (1) Overview of different types of regional and international mechanisms; (2) Exploring possible models and mandate of such a mechanism in Southeast Asia, including where it would be hosted; (3) Reviewing the challenges and opportunities of establishing a mechanism for freedom of expression and the media in Southeast Asia; and (4) Possible recommendations, working paper, and the way forward.

Just a year earlier, in October 2015, the Myanmar News Media Council (MNMC) was established, replacing the Interim Myanmar Press Council (MPC) as the regulatory body for the media industry. The upcoming World Press Freedom Day which will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia from 1 to 4 May 2017 offers an excellent opportunity to convene a roundtable with the TLPC and MNMC with experts on self-regulation of the media from around the world. Specifically, the roundtable would: (1) introduce the TLPC and MNMC to other more established press council networks around the world; (2) generate knowledge-sharing between TLPC and MNMC with more established press councils on issues such the day-to-day operation of press council and handling of complaints; and (3) explore future capacity building and cooperation opportunities.

Re-shaping cultural policies for artistic freedom: Ministerial panel and artists’ panel (in English only)

Organizer: UNESCO, with support from Denmark
Venue: Merak Room I

Promoting respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms of expression, information and communication is a prerequisite for the creation, distribution and enjoyment of diverse cultural expressions. These are among the core guiding principles of the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and the 1980 Recommendation on the Status of Artists. The recognition and protection of artistic freedom are germane not only to the creative practice of artists themselves but also to the rights of all cultural producers. 
In the dynamics of social development, artistic freedom is an essential ingredient of the wellbeing of citizens and societies and for the stability of the cultural and creative industry sectors. The growth and flourishing of the latter are striking in countries that respect and protect the freedom of artistic expression. Freedom of expression for artists can be understood as a complex area of issues for policymakers, which includes measures aimed at protecting and promoting the economic and social rights of artists as well as their freedom of movement and of association.
During the 2016 edition of World Press Freedom Day held in Helsinki (Finland), Nordic Ministers of Culture adopted a Joint Declaration reaffirming that “Artistic and creative expression, as an integral part of the human right to freedom of expression, is critical both to the development of cultures and to the functioning of democratic societies”. Further to this, the Declaration welcomed “the important steps taken by UNESCO to enhance global monitoring in areas such as artistic freedom, gender equality, civil society participation and challenges in the digital age”, and encouraged further “discussions on the tools needed (…) as part of our national, regional and UNESCO’s normative systems.”
Bearing in mind global objectives set for the attainment of SDG.16.10 target on public access to information and protection of fundamental freedoms, this panel of Ministers of Culture from the Asia-Pacific region will take forward the Helsinki discussion. It will discuss how Governments can take appropriate steps to promote artistic freedom throughout the culture value chain, from creation to access. The focus will be on the possible types of interventions for promoting gender equality, state-civil society collaboration and the unhindered movement of artists. This high-level debate will be followed by a second panel composed of artists and cultural producers, who will provide insights on these topics, and the new obstacles faced (visas, double taxation, etc) that can hinder free, fair and balanced cultural and artistic international exchanges.
