The Reanimation Package of Reforms in cooperation with the Media Law Institute would like to invite you to a diplomatic breakfast dedicated to the second anniversary of adoption of the Law “On public broadcasting in Ukraine.”
In early April, Ukrainian TV channels started to disclose the information about their owners, which has but confirmed profound influence of the oligarchs on the Ukrainian information space and ‘offshorization’ of media property. In such conditions, establishment of an independent broadcaster should become a key priority of information security to ensure citizens’ right for objective and unbiased information.
What has been achieved in the two years after the law was adopted? Why an independent public television and radio broadcaster has not been established in Ukraine yet? Who and how derails the reform process and which steps should be taken to unblock the reform? Experts of the Reanimation Package of Reforms and a representative of the National Television and Radio Broadcaster of Ukraine – the future public broadcaster – are going to answer these and other questions.
The diplomatic breakfast will be organized on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, at 9:30 am at the office of the Reanimation Package of Reforms at address: Kyiv, 6a Olhynska St., office 21.
Taras Shevchenko, co-chairman of the Reanimation Package of Reforms Board, member of the Supervisory Board of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting company of Ukraine, director of the Media Law Institute;
Viktoria Romanova, executive vice-president for international cooperation of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting company of Ukraine;
Igor Rozkladai, lawyer at the Media Law Institute, expert of the Media Group of the Reanimation Package of Reforms.
Working language of the diplomatic breakfast will be English.
