Mano at Carnegie and Meta State Media Symposium in Washington
CAMRI’s Winston Mano was among invited experts at a two-day symposium on state media, organised by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in partnership with Meta, formerly named Facebook. The interactive working symposium explored the role of state media in relation to the information environment, as well as policy options for addressing associated problems. It aimed to foster a more nuanced and contextualized understanding of state media from different perspectives, including in terms of geography, identity, and viewpoint diversity. The presentations and discussion not only explored best practices towards state media entities but sought to expand the set of experts whose voices are being heard in the current debate on state media. The in-person event ran from 3-4 May in Washington. The Carnegie Endowment was established by Andrew Carnegie in 1910 to help the world avoid international conflict, which he called the “foulest blot upon our civilization.” Its main role is to generate strategic ideas and independent analysis. It supports diplomacy and trains international scholar-practitioners to help countries and institutions take on the most difficult global problems and safeguard peace.
