Research has shown that globalisation need not necessarily mean that foreign news receives greater attention in our media. In their resolution Flemish government lawmakers call for more attention for foreign news and especially for news from developing countries and the European Union, but also from Wallonia.
The lawmakers suggest that the Flemish government could provide extra support for the world news agency IPS and the international development magazine MO*. The government could also examine how foreign journalists can pass on their experience to colleagues here.
The resolution will be discussed in parliament on 14 June.
