EPRIE aims to share and exchange perspectives and experiences between East Asia and Europe. In 2018, we examined the challenges posed to the media sector by populism and post-truth politics. This year, together with media practitioners, actors from civil society, scholars and politicians, we will focus on social media as a tool for social change.
The program will take place in East Asia (Japan and South Korea) from June 26 to July 7, 2019. Application deadline will be on Sunday, March 24, 2019. For further information, please have a look at the program for EPRIE 2019:
From June 27 to July 8 Korea Verband has organized the exchange program EPRIE 2018 “Media in times of populism and post-truth politics – challenges and opportunities” in Krzyżowa / Wroclaw (Poland), Potsdam / Berlin (Germany) and Brussels (Belgium). Twenty young people aged between 25 and 35 years participated in the program, half of them from Europe (Germany, Poland, Italy, Switzerland, Armenia, Macedonia, and Romania) and half from Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Pakistan). The group was also balanced in terms of proportions between academics and practitioners and gender.
We are pleased to inform you that the concept for the documentary series “What is home to you?” has been created by EPRIE Alumni and thanks to the EPRIE project fund the two pilot episodes will be shot this summer in Germany and South Korea. Yet the team behind the documentary series is still looking for collaborators.
Alumni of the EPRIE program are organizing a conference on migrants and refugees inclusion policies and practices. The conference will take place from June 22 to June 23, 2018 in Granada, Spain and is a project funded by the EPRIE project fund.
The alumni of the EPRIE program published the new EPRIE Journal 2017 on migration, integration, and belonging. The EPRIE Journal for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe is the successor of the Korea Forum Special issues on EPRIE and covers the topics of EPRIE as well as the activities and research of the alumni.
