Conference celebrates Lebanese journalism

Event organized by French Embassy marks 10th anniversary of Faculty of Higher Education

Education Minister Assad Rizk praised Lebanese universities at a conference organized by the French Embassy in Lebanon and the Lebanese University (LU).

The meeting was a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Faculty of Higher Education in Francophone Journalism.

"We should maintain our level of quality, profiting from our accords of cooperation in the fields of research, education and expert exchanges with French institutions," Rizk said.

The conference was held at L'Ecole Superieure Des Affairs (ESA) and was titled "Media Ethics in Changing Societies."

Rizk also said Lebanese journalism should be held to European standards, those of the French in particular.

He added the effort between the Faculty of Information and Documentation at LU, the Center for Forming and Perfecting Journalists at the ESA and the French institute of Press, which all jointly created the Faculty of Higher Education, has been "a real success for Lebanon and France."

French Ambassador Bernard Emie also praised the partnership of the two countries, adding that it was "a remarkable success which, in 10 years, has graduated more than 200 successful journalists like LBCI representative May Chidiac."

Emie also said: "Today we celebrate the importance and the absolute necessity of the Lebanese press, which is competitive, independent and free of political and economic pressure, and of which Samir Kassir should still be a part."

The French diplomat added that, in Kassir's memory, educators should try to create new generations of journalists as independent and professional as he was.

MP-elect Gebran Tueni noted that journalism in the Arab world, once simply a mouthpiece for governments, now plays an important part in the development and education of societies.

Tueni said: "The Lebanese press played an important role in 'Independence 2005,' because it has the freedom to influence change."

Bernard de la Villardiere, editor in chief of the Zone Interdite television program on French channel M6, said that journalists working in changing societies should play a role in the peaceful resolution of conflict and in the education of the public.
