Bootcamp - How will the media use drones in the future? What are the legal, financial and ethical frameworks?
Drones could solve editorial issues, but they also cause a lot of ethical or legal problems that will need to be addressed. What flying autorisation is required? What new privacy issues arise because small and silent drones fly over unaccessible areas and private property shooting high quality video? What would be the cost of replacing a helicopter fleet by drones? Are they powerful and effective enough to provide regular aerial photography and videography? This session will give media leaders insight about the possibilities offered by unmanned aerial vehicles, clear examples to guide future investments and strategy, and journalistic issues that newsrooms need consider about their use.

Panel discussion.

Joint session with Reporters without Borders (RSF) and the Syrian Association of Free Media (ASML) - What does the future hold for a free press in Syria?

Since 2012, numerous media organizations have formed in the liberated areas of Syria, notably in print, radio and online platforms. How can these newsrooms survive in a war torn country? As this media community moves forward into the post Assad era, will their work reflect journalism which is professional and of a high quality? Or will the same demons, which previously suppressed journalism, remain in place?

With two Editors-in-Chief working in Turkey and in liberated areas of Syria:

Ola Aljari, Editor, Dawda newspaper and Sweida Media Center (tbc)

Mohammad Mallak, Director of Programmation, Hawa SMART (tbc)

and:

Launched in 2012, the LEADERSHIP HAUSA is a newspaper reflecting the lifestyles of the fast-changing demography of native and non-native hausa-speakers, who make up 25% of the country's 160 million population.
