Associate professor Anthony Fargo will moderate a panel discussion May 19 in Hamburg, Germany, on the impact of recent political events on the international influence of the First Amendment. The panel session, “Does That Banner Yet Wave?” is part of the International Press Institute’s world congress in Hamburg May 18-29.

Panelists are Daoud Kuttab, a Jordanian-American journalist who runs an online news organization in Amman, Jordan; Ashley Messenger, the senior associate general counsel for NPR in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Kristin Sanders, a professor at Northwestern University-Qatar.

The panel is sponsored by The Media School’s Barbara Restle Press Law Project, funded by a gift from IU journalism alumna Barbara Restle. The project focuses on research and education about laws that protect journalists and their sources and on strengthening press freedom laws.  Fargo leads the project in his role as director of The Media School’s Center on International Media Law and Policy Studies.
