Thursday, 28 March 2019

joav_toker_2017_100x120.jpgProfessor Joav Toker participated in the first Cartooning Global Forum organized at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris last October under the patronage of the French Permanent Delegation at UNESCO. This event brought together journalists, political cartoonists, and other media professionals to discuss the active role of cartooning in society with the aim to promote peace, freedom of speech, equality and education, and produce recommendations for the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDG 2010).

Professor Toker participated in the opening session, which focused on the democracy challenges related to institutional attempts to control or restrain cartoonists’ freedom of expression.

A journalist by training, Professor Toker teaches the courses on Global Communications, Media, and International Affairs at AGS. He is also a regular political consultant and commentator on TV (TV5 Monde, France 24, and others). In March he participated in a debate on the Chinese Global Television Network CGTN about perceptions within the EU regarding China’s “Belt and Road Initiative”.
