OPEN Conversation – Media Responsibility in the Age of Disinformation with OPEN World Partnerships – by CFTB

How are journalists preserving their freedom of expression?


Freedom of expression is one of the fundamental pillars of an open and democratic society and a hallmark of the United States. As journalists investigate issues, raise awareness, and inform the public about important events from past to present, their reports are judged from various perspectives. Whether it be government officials or global citizens reading from newspapers or social media, the values and ethics of investigative journalism have been brought into sharp focus in the U.S.  


Join OPEN and World Partnerships in an exploration of the role journalists play in U.S. society and the impact of investigative journalism on U.S. history, without losing sight of current politics and society.

This panel conversation and Q & A with global journalists highlights voices coming from all over the world to St. Petersburg to discuss topics ranging from freedom of the press to fact-checking and countering disinformation.

These visiting journalists are part of the US Department of State’s “Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists”, which is a flagship initiative of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). This program has brought more than 1,500 foreign journalists to the U.S. in the past 15 years.

OPEN and World Partnerships have joined together to develop new and novel approaches that bring global perspectives to local and regional community engagement. We recognize that where OPEN provides the “community on-ramp” to engage World Partnerships official international visitors, World Partnerships brings a “global on-ramp” for the OPEN community to engage and connect with the World.


Event is FREE and OPEN to the Public.
