Journalism Events

International Delegates

Description

Journalists today are not just people with cameras and pens, using their specific means to inform the world. They’re watchdogs, investigators, moderators, entertainers, analysts, commentators, and advertisers. They are community activists, agenda-setters, and voices for the voiceless. They are public servants, keepers of public record, protectors of democracy, and promoters of public dialogue. It is for their crucial role in society that we invite people from the international community to come and celebrate journalists for these roles.

CARMA’ 14 focuses on history and its importance in helping us finding our bearings today. Here again, we have journalists to thank for informing us of the geo-political situation of the world and for making us aware of where we position ourselves in this web. The past has seen a shift of power between nations, oppressive forces becoming stronger, subdued people stumbling in the political dynamic and physical calamities that have deeply affected nations. There have been changes in the economic situations and these have always determined the shape of international politics. With such a course of history that makes people feel little in the wrath of the big bad world, journalists become the servants of people informing and interpreting events. They have the desire to influence and are ready to champion the cause of the underdog and expose corruption and abuse of offices.

In Pakistan, journalism has emerged much stronger than before in recent years. It still faces glitches because of unstable governance but we choose to look at the positive side where this discipline has come a long way and offers hope to people in assuring them that tomorrow will be better than yesterday. We invite the international community as journalism has paid a pivotal role in their societies by crushing antagonistic sentiments and hostilities between counties and given us an opportunity to come together and celebrate media and journalists for their true value.
