    (ANSAmed) - LECCE, AUGUST 28 - The 11th edition of the Mediterranean Journalists Festival will take place September 2-7 in Otranto, with a focus on Islam, terrorism, migration, and dialogue for peace, in the context of international politics and journalism.

    The festival is organised by the association Terra del Mediterraneo in partnership with Corecom and the Region of Puglia.

    The programme includes 22 events with 70 guests, as well as shows and meetings on the right to information.

    On September 5, the case of Italian doctoral student Giulio Regeni, who was murdered in Egypt in 2016, will be revisited, and his parents will be in attendance.

    Tommaso Forte, a journalist and the festival's founder, said another topic for discussion at this year's festival will be the future of professional journalism.

    "The debate will be livened up to provide moments of confrontation that contribute to starting a reflection on current hot topics," Forte said.

    Each year, experts from the most important national and international newspapers take part in the festival.

    The festival's institutional partners include the embassies of Morocco, Jordan, and Tunisia, and the Order of Malta.

    This year, the festival will host a show on the 900-year history of the Sovereign Order of Malta, which will take place along the waterfront on Lungomare degli Eroi.
