    Spaces for debate, mediation and régulation of journalism practices

    by Collectif | 18 October 2014

    Press ethics are debated in many different areas, and not always those one would expect. This diversification underlines the new and widespread emphasis on moral issues, an unusual trend in journalism till now. The rights and responsibilities of the press have often been discussed, but never before have so many different entities taken a stand on the issue. Some advocate for moral journalism, as if this should be enforced, imposed, like a responsibility. Others defend journalism’s (...)

    New paths for investigative journalism

    by Aurore Gorius | 18 October 2014

    Speed and haste have never been great allies for journalism. The increasing influence of the Internet and multiplication of broadcasting channels have made information flow a lot faster. News is broadcast as soon as possible and commentary delivered immediately. Newsrooms have to continuously do more, with less. This historical technical turning point questions the essence of journalism and its credibility: in this context, where can investigative journalism and reports written over long (...)

    “Public life / private life: what are the boundaries for European journalists?”

    by Collectif | 2 October 2014

    It is true that the line between private and public life has varied over time, according to social, political and cultural contexts, today it is increasingly thin and, at times, porous. Where are the boundaries in the public arena? What is the situation for our neighbours and throughout Europe? When can national media cross this figurative limit? How is this separation viewed by European countries? How does the culture and history of a population affect the acceptance or not of intrusion (...)

    The Journalists’ arbitration commission, a joint-consultation system

    by Denis Ruellan | 5 November 2013

    Every individual case handled by the arbitration commission is both commonplace and unique... The commission is often referred to for the same reasons, mainly cession, economic layoffs and misconduct. But behind this apparent simplicity are an infinity of specific cases and different careers. Particularly since the arbitration procedure has significant impact on both work contracts and joint consultation, and is therefore a crossroads where financial stakes, social relations within the (...)

    The Journalists’ Societies and the notion of participation in the press enterprise

    by Manola Gardez | 2 November 2012

    « Are we doomed to painfully oscillate between a system whereby workers are simple instruments in the enterprise which they belong to and another that would crush everyone, body and soul, in an odious, totalitarian and bureaucratic machinery? No! The human, French and practical solution to this question that dominates everything is neither in the lowering of oneself nor in the servitude of others. The solution is in the proper and fruitful association of those who would put in common, (...)

    Conflicts of interest in media information

    by Bertrand Verfaillie | 10 November 2011

    If the work of former Secretary of State, Martin Hirsch, made some stir, Bertrand Verfaillie’s book comes as a complement to the important missing section on media and information. The notion of conflict of interest in the press and information is a current topic which the author explores in different dimensions : all types of relationships that could cause a conflict of interest are indeed addressed and are investigated and detailed by interviews. To remedy this situation, the author not (...)
