Discussions on how to support sustainability of independent media
generally focus on the political conditions, the legal framework and -
especially in German development cooperation - on the quality of
journalistic coverage. Nevertheless, economic factors are of equal
importance, not only for the pure survival but also with respect to
editorial independence and the resources available to enhance or
guarantee the quality of media outlets.

What constitutes the antagonism between public mandate and market
success? How can journalistic independence be reinforced in small media
markets? How can the sustainability of independent media be strengthened
without subsidising single companies? Which business and management
models have proved to be efficient?

The symposium will analyse factors restricting or enhancing media
environments. It will introduce successful business and management
models and should result in concrete recommendations of how media
development aid could avoid past failures and support independent media
also in their endeavour to gain and sustain a sound economic basis.

In cooperation with the Forum Media and Development, the symposium will
take place at the Academy Eichholz Castle (Bildungszentrum Schloss
Eichholz) of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Wesseling.

Completed registration forms should be sent to the Academy Eichholz
Castle in Wesseling
(near Bonn/Cologne) by 31 August, 2006.

We look forward to welcoming you at the event!

Kind regards,

Michael Lingenthal
Director Bildungszentrum Schloss Eichholz
