Debates of the IDL

The relationship between media and politics was the topic chosen for debate at IDL on July 19th, 2012.

In the second debate promoted by IDL, Carlos Magno (chairman of the board of ERC -Entidade Reguladora para a Comunicação Social/ Regulatory Authority for Media) and Joaquim Vieira (president of Observatório da Imprensa/ Press Observer) discussed the recent conflict that set Minister Miguel Relvas against the daily PÚBLICO, the pressure that political figures exert on the media, and the quality of journalism practiced in Portugal.

The debates at IDL are organized in partnership with the CES (Centre for European Studies) with the objective of discussing social and political thought, unravelling preconceived ideas for the general public, and indicating governing alternatives.
