Presentation

At the first edition of the Journalism Convention held in Tunis, in November 2018, over 500 speakers and delegates from the Arab world, Africa and Europe attended the workshops, debates and conferences on offer.

Since the Tunis event, partnerships on both sides of the Mediterranean have taken shape. A number of journalism schools in Europe and around the Mediterranean have been keen to launch projects involving their students and teaching staff. Supporting such initiatives is vital because future journalists have a key role to play in promoting dialogue and easing tensions in their countries of origin.

The MediaLab Campus project contributes to developing student and teacher exchanges between schools through partnerships that are both rich in meaning and conducive to great experiences. By supporting bilateral and multilateral initiatives, it promotes the development of links between students, encourages educational exchanges and supports the organisation of content production activities on the ground

The project falls within the scope of the “International Strategy for French Language and Plurilingualism".
