Journalists from Asia and Europe attended 2 intensive ASEF Journalists’ Workshops, in Brussels, Belgium, January 2016 and in Guangzhou, China, May 2016. These workshops focused on the themes of connectivity and collaboration between Asia and Europe, specifically relating to the practice and role of journalism.
The workshops were organised in the lead up to the 8th Editors’ Roundtable (ERT8) held in conjunction with the 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM11) in July 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. In addition, an online survey was produced by ASEF to capture perceptions and activities relating to the digital connectivity of journalists throughout Asia and Europe. Outcomes and recommendations from the 2 workshops and the survey offered input into ERT8 in July 2016.
This workshop looks at the Roundtable conclusions and action points, and will recommend a roadmap for collaboration among journalists from Asia and Europe with a special focus on digital tools and platforms.
