Join us for a panel discussion that will explore media reporting on labour
issues. In what ways does the media cover the dynamics of the workplace and the
labour market? What is and what should be the role of the media in reporting on
work? What impact can media reporting have on raising awareness about critical
issues in the workplace and in effecting progressive social change?labour and media image
