Internet & personal freedoms – discussion with Emeric Tourniaire (computer science professor at Lycée Henri IV)
The Internet is the world’s largest information network, used by more than three billion people. However, its functioning is often poorly understood: internet or web? What are cookies? Can the internet break down? The Internet is also a terrain of political conflicts (censorship, surveillance, freedom of expression, etc.). This presentation therefore presents an overview of the technical functioning of the network, and the stakes involved in its control.

Media & the COVID-19 crisis – discussion with Mine Gencel Bek (researcher at the University of Siegen) & Germinal Pinalie (communication professional & lecturer at Paris-Descartes)

In this conference, we aim to start a debate on how journalists could cover this crisis; how their working conditions should be; and how the citizens may help in disseminating news in a more responsible as well as participative way. We would also like to address the situation of the whistleblowers in these complex times, and the role of democratic movements in this complex political period. The debate can be framed, more broadly, as civic right to access, disseminate, circulate and consume news and knowledge. In this broader perspective, all workers involved in health and information issues may be included, preferably comparatively, by considering both the similar and differing political economic contexts.

In this interview, she will tell us about the electoral campaign, relationships with other left parties active in her cities, how they managed to build a coalition, and a successful campaign.
