The 2021 Carthage Seminars and Summer School will explore the theme of cultural pluralism in the Media, both traditional and digital, with particular attention paid to information technologies and how news spreads. What are the principal sources of information in the Arab and Muslim World? Who finances them, who owns them, who controls them culturally? Who is in the position to guarantee or impede freedom of speech and the plurality of public discourse? The courses and workshops will explore the status of pluralism in the Arab and Muslim world and the communities the world over.

From 4 to 7 June London will host the first set of hearings of the Uyghur Tribunal, a people tribunal set up to gather and examine evidence of human rights abuses and genocide by the Chinese government on the Uyghur population. The constitution of the Tribunal, a quasi-judicial organization composed by independent members of the civil society whose judgement is not legally binding, is only the latest development in the multi-decade struggle involving the Uyghur people and the Chinese government. On the eve of its opening, we spoke with Dolkun Isa, the president of the World Uyghur Congress and the main promoter of the Tribunal.
