Members of six parliaments tomorrow at Cetinje Parliamentary Forum

Discussion on the topic “Parliament and mass communications” within the 19th Cetinje Parliamentary Forum, organised by the Parliament of Montenegro, will be held on Friday, 8 December 2017, from 10:00 to 16:00 at the Ministry of Culture in Cetinje.

The topic of the forum “Parliament and mass communications” will gather the representatives of the parliaments of five countries in the region, eminent experts in the field of communications, media representatives, non-governmental organisations representatives, as well as the diplomatic corps and the students of relevant faculties.

The panel titled “Democracy in digital era” will cover the impact of digital era and new media on openness and understanding of the role of parliaments and vice versa.

The second panel titled “The truth in the post-truth age” will initiate a debate on the topic of traditional and new media: who is in charge of the truth and who of the post-truth defined by the Oxford Dictionary as circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.

On the occasion of the CPF, an exhibition of paintings of the Parliament of Montenegro will be opened in the Ministry of Culture in Cetinje. The citizens of the Old Royal Capital and their guests will be able to see the exhibition until 18 December.
