24 November, the last lecture day of the School, was dedicated to the challenges that the world will face after the pandemic. Andrey Bystritskiy, Russian journalist, media manager, and Dean of the Faculty of Communications, Media and Design at HSE University, delivered a lecture “Media and international relations in the Post-COVID era”, in which he discussed the urgent need for changes in the newly emerging media.
He mentioned that nowadays we see the split of the world into the real and virtual ones. In the real world, we are not anonymous, our data can be easily checked, and anyone can find information about anything and anyone. But in a virtual one, we can hide our identity and thus avoid the responsibility for our words and actions. In this regard, it is important to find a way how to manage this virtual world. The expert proposed the following options:
- learn how to manage the hierarchy of media
- find reliable sources of information
A case in point is BBC, which is public broadcasting service that is closely linked with different parties, organizations and trade unions, and makes alike things in the virtual space – internet citizenship and tax system – that would create mutual trust and hierarchy of the information.
Solving thе current global crisis can help develop the new tools for global governance that will unite people and make countries take into account not only their national interests but the global ones as well.
