The turbulent situation in the Middle East is reflected in many different ways in the various media in the area. In most countries rigid censorship reigns. In other more liberal areas efforts to report objectively what is happening are increasingly undermined by the political objectives of the different sides of the conflict.

Those of you who happen to be in Stockholm the 27th of October 2004, should visit JMK for an open lecture by Gedeon Meir entitled The Middle East Conflict and the Media. Gideon Meir is the Deputy Director General for Public Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem.

Date: 27th October 2004, between 1015-1200 CET
Place: JMK-salen, JMK, Karlavagen 104, Stockholm
