WAR IN UKRAINE: freedom of the press in times of war

Jean Jaurès Foundation
12 Cité Malesherbes, 75009, Paris
06/12/2022 - 7pm to 8:30pm

Cartooning for Peace, the Jean Jaurès Foundation, the Ukrainian Embassy in France and the Friends of Ukrainian Culture in France are organising a round table: “War in Ukraine: Freedom of the Press in Times of War”.

The war in Ukraine, unleashed by Vladimir Putin, takes us back to the darkest hours of history.

In addition to the war of arms, which has resulted in a tragic number of civilian victims, there is also the war of words and images.

This is known as the “information war” or the “story war”. It accentuates the dangers of disinformation, propaganda and censorship and raises the question of press freedom in times of war.

So how can we bear witness, analyse, draw, denounce and guarantee reliable information? We will discuss this with :

  • Vladimir Kazanevsky, Ukrainian press cartoonist, member of Cartooning for Peace
  • Elena Voloshine, Franco-Russian journalist at France 24
  • Pierre Haski, journalist specialising in international issues, President of Reporters Without Borders (RSF)

Moderator: Jérémie Peltier, Director General of the Jean Jaurès Foundation

Tuesday 6 December, at 7pm, at the Jean Jaurès Foundation, 12 Cité Malesherbes 75009 Paris
Round-table, free entrance, on registration
