On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, IDI Research Fellow Dr. Tehilla Shwartz Altshuler, head of Media Reform and Democracy in the Information Age Projects, chaired a session entitled “The New Journalism: How Digital Media Changed the Rules” at an international conference in Jerusalem. The two-day conference, which was convened by the Jerusalem Press Club, focused on Freedom of the Press: Old Commitments, New Challenges.

During the session, Dr. Shwartz Altshuler explored the ethics of the new media age, as well as journalistic implications of increasing access to government information and the need for "data journalism" in the era of big data. She also highlighted some of the research carried out under the auspices of IDI’s open government project, which she heads.
