A very untraditional event took place this summer at the IAMCR conference in Cartagena. Indigenous people came together to create their own declaration. Head of MEKK, Roy Krøvel joined as convenor and moderator of this unconventional seminar called “Minga of Thought -Communication and Indigenous Peoples”. 200 journalists, researchers and leaders from all over the world, in addition to ingenious groups from North and Latin-America were gathered to create the Minga.There were no call for papers, but rather a space for dialogue was created, where a declaration was written. The occasion was inspired from the indigenous word “Minga.”

Welcome to conference: Collaborative Research, Experiences from Latin America. Part of a series of events to wrap up the RCN-funded project ‘Extracting Justice?’

Location: Pilestredet 46. Room PA113 Athene

Date: Tuesday 22. of June, 2017

Time: 09.00 – 13.00


Since the heyday of Participatory Action Research (PAR) and the “pedagogy of the oppressed” until today, Latin American academics and intellectual-activists have produced a panoply of politicized collaborative research methods that is perhaps unparalleled in the world. This conference presents some of these unique contributions.

Head of MEKK, Roy Krøvel has played a major role in organizing and presenting the conference, where as MEKK-member Anne Hege Simonsen will participate as moderator.


The importance of protecting journalism

ResearchPeople who exercise their right to freedom of expression through journalism are constant targets of violence and threats. In an era of globalization and digitization, no single party can carry the responsibility for protection of journalism ad freedom of expression alone. Instead, this responsibility must be assumed jointly by the state, the courts, media companies and journalist organizations, as well as by NGOs and civil society – on national as well as global levels.
