Norway in the new digital media landscape

September 5 2016

On Mondag 5 September, The Fritt Ord Foundaiton and Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University will be hosting a debate on the findings of the annual {File-1}.

Digital media are becoming a more and more important part of the media environment all over the world, with profound consequences for the practice of journalism, the business of news, and for how people get information about the world around them. How these developments are playing out, however, varies in important ways from country to country. The Reuters Institute Digital News Report is the largest international, cross-country analysis of how these trends are evolving, and in 2016 for the first time included Norway, providing an opportunity to compare developments in Norway to trends in the 26 other countries across America, Europe, and Asia covered in the report. At this event, Nic Newman, Research Associate at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford and lead author of the Digital News Report since its inception in 2012 will present the main findings from this year’s report and discuss the implications with a panel of prominent Norwegian media people.

Time and place:
The Fritt Ord Foundation, Uranienborgveien 1, 0258 Oslo
Monday 5 September, 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
