Observations from a Media Dialog event hosted by Deutsche Welle’s DW Akademie on January 24, 2016 Myanmar's media landscape is in the middle of a dynamic transition period. Could the shift of political power (from the former military government to Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy) hinder or even stop this process? Participants of a Media Dalog "Empowerment of Community Media - Gender Issues & Freedom of Expression", hosted by DW Akademie's Deputy Director Ute Schaeffer, raised concerns the new NLD government may not regard the timely launch of community based broadcasting in Myanmar a No.1 priority.

Berlin Policy Journal

Berlin Policy Journal

The past few months have sharpened the divisions between members of the EU more than any other crisis before. It is not the first time that onlookers have predicted the imminent end of the European Union, but the strength of centrifugal forces pulling it apart seem unprecedented. In the new issue, Almut Möller (“The Disheartened Continent”) argues that Europe needs to focus on the values that unite its people to overcome the divisions tearing the continent apart. Ulrich Speck (“Player or Pawn?”) proposes a truly unified European foreign policy, and Andreas Rinke (“The Last European” – app only) describes the German chancellor’s efforts to keep the EU united. Mark Leonard (“Goodbye? Hello!” – app only) says that it is not Britain that wants to leave the EU, but a part of the British elite that is pushing the “Leave” campaign. BERLIN POLICY JOURNAL is a bimonthly app magazine on international affairs, edited in Germany’s capital. Each issue sets a theme and reports on a diverse range of current and emerging foreign policy topics, aiming at making German and European foreign policy. Published by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP)
