The II Meeting of the WG on Economy and Communication Policies and the V Meeting of the Journalism and Society WG on the theme “Frontiers of journalism and business models: constraints and sustainability” will be held next November 21, in the ICS.
The exercise of journalism has been permanently challenged by technological provisions and challenged by social conditions. Increasingly, in the current situation, the profession has also been threatened at the corporate level by the financial and economic difficulties that threaten its sustainability. The bankruptcy of the traditional business model has put journalistic companies under pressure, affecting not only the resources necessary for the mission’s performance but also forcing journalism to redefine its field and ethical and deontological practices.
It is at this intersection, between journalism, economic and ethical sustainability, that this meeting is organized jointly by the WG of Economy and Communication Policies and Journalism and Society. The identification of these issues opens a common area of reflection for researchers from both WGs who are therefore invited to share their work.
The organization of the event is a partnership between the Center for Studies in Communication and Society (CECS) and the Portuguese Association of Communication Sciences (SOPCOM).
