FRANCE 24, with approved membership as of 22 November 2010, is an international news and current affairs television channel and broadcast through satellite and cable operators throughout the world. It started broadcasting on 6 December 2006.

FRANCE 24 is the 24/7 international news channel, which deals with current events with a French perspective. The channel contributes a different point of view from Anglo-Saxon media in terms of cultural diversity.

FRANCE 24 is a multilingual-broadcast channel (English, French and Arabic) as well as an expert regarding collaboration with new media. The channel was launched on web before TV, and is the first to develop a free application on iPhone and iPad to facilitate users to catch the latest news.

In Asia, the English version of the channel is broadcast in Australia, Hong Kong, Macau, Indonesia, New Zealand, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. It would continue to expand and plan to bring the French version into the region this year. Asia is not only a rising market for Pay TV and new media, but also a place where different cultures meet.







Dart Centre Australasia (DCA), with approved membership as of 11 January 2011, is a non-profit project of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism-USA. With permanent offices in Melbourne, Australia and training programs and other activities throughout the Asia Pacific, Dart Centre Australasia (DCA) selects a group of distinguished media and trauma professionals to offer consultation on issues including training, outreach, development and ethics.

The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma continues a mission begun in the 1990s. It works to promote discussion, develop training, and exchange specialist knowledge on the most challenging of media issues. The Dart Center is a global network of journalists, journalism educators, trauma professionals and health professionals dedicated to improving media coverage of trauma, conflict and tragedy. It provides a professional forum for journalists in all media to analyze issues, share knowledge and ideas, and advance strategies related to the craft of reporting on violence and tragedy.





The Palestine Public Broadcasting Commission (PBC), with approved membership as of 17 January 2011, is the fruit of the development of the Palestinian media that started to emerge in the beginnings of the last century. Palestinian media was reinforced by the establishment of “This is Jerusalem Radio” in 1936. The “Palestine TV station” and the “Voice of Palestine” were launched in 1994.

PBC sculpts its mission to represent the homeland and be media that is both from the society and to the society. It seeks to launch its efforts on the basis of modern media models along with technological advancements and up-to-date information.

The PBC believes that its main leverage lies within its cultural assets, which includes leading distinguished intellectuals, innovative people and artists who contribute to the process of preparing programs and launching dialogue. It seeks to contribute to the process of reconstruction and reuniting of the Palestinian society, through developing capacities and forming a collective and an individual conscience. This is aimed at keeping the Palestinians’ right to remain steadfast on their land and achieving goals of building an independent free state. It represents the voice of the Palestinian’s hope to build a democratic state that protects human dignity and encourages the development of its people in a peaceful, secure atmosphere that guarantees harmony with neighboring countries.
