The Idea

The number of journalists and media representatives who live in exile in Germany and work here is increasing. What does it mean to be in exile as a journalist? How is the German media landscape changing in the context of migration and globalization? What is the role of digitalisation in this context? These questions will be addressed at the Exile Media Forum. Once a year, around 100 experts and media representatives will be invited to Hamburg to discuss future issues, to detect new trends and to exchange experiences.

The Forum

The first Exile Media Forum will take place on 29/30 October 2018 in Hamburg, KörberForum.
