This year, due to the pandemic, the CMPF’s Summer School for Journalists moved online. Over five weeks, the programme explored the effects that COVID-19 has had on the media and journalism with sessions on data journalism, investigative journalism, the “infodemic”, safety of journalists, media freedom and regulation, and the dynamics of media sustainability in the digital age. Attendees were treated to sessions from experts including, Paul Radu (OCCRP), Claire Wardle (First Draft News), Pier Luigi Parcu (EUI), Paolo Boldi (Università degli Studi di Milano) Krisztina Rozgonyi (University of Vienna), and Attila Batorfy (Atlatszo). In addition, two special webinars were featured; Ricardo Gutierrez (EFJ), Mar Cabra (ICIJ), and Urska Umek (CoE) spoke about journalist safety. Participants also had the opportunity for a dialogue with European Commission Vice President, Vera Jourova, who spoke about the European Commission’s agenda and the steps they are taking towards supporting the media sector in Europe.
