The forum is hosted by the German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle and will focus on Media in Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention.
A full programme is available here.
I'll be providing live updates by tumblr and by Twitter - both feeds are on the right hand side if you're checking out the blog for the first time.
Just to be up front from the word go, I am a freelance journalist and contribute to several media outlets including Deutsche Welle.
I'll be blogging independently for the European Journalism Centre and my thanks to the EJC for the opportunity.
