EGYPT: MEDIA SEMINAR IN CAIRO


Amnesty International is holding a media seminar on 26 and 27 May in Cairo, on developing an effective role for the media in promoting human rights.


The purpose of this internal seminar is to highlight the vital part that Middle Eastern media could play in spreading awareness of human rights in the region, and consolidating the values and principles embodied in international human rights standards -- independent of any political or partisan considerations.


In the seminar, Amnesty International will be presenting a paper entitled "The media as a platform for promoting a human rights culture".


For information about Amnesty International's country reports please contact the Press Office at the International Secretariat in London.
