In democratic civil society, what kind of public intellectual is the journalist advocate? What ethical dilemmas are generated by their commitments (which may be sometimes in conflict)? Is the ethical mandate of the activist-journalist a straightforward promotion of human rights, or the taking of a critical stance in order to better assess any political and social agendas set in the name of such rights?
Speakers include Omar Al-Ghazzi (London School of Economics), Burcu Karakaş (Journalist), Shepherd Mpofu (University of Limpopo), Anjan Sundaram (Independent Journalist), Basharat Peer (The New York Times) and Francis L.F. Lee (Chinese University of Hong Kong).
