Workshop: (Human) Rights-based approach as a framing concept for media development

am Donnerstag, 16.30 Uhr bis 18 Uhr

The rights-based approach as a framing concept offers a new perspective on media development. Taking this concept seriously means deriving consequences from Article 19 and developing strategies based on them. What are the advantages of such a value-driven development cooperation in media development? How participative is this concept?
