IlluminatiX – the Media and PR Cell of Xavier University, Bhubaneswar will be hosting its annual Media Conclave – Communiqué’18 XUB. The conclave aims to wrap around the theme of Media: Still a Mouthpiece for Free Speech?

A free press gives a practical effect to the individual’s right to free speech. It allows one’s voice to be heard by many. In a democracy like ours, media is a factual necessity. Free Speech and Media sail together to set things on track. For all its fundamental importance, however, free speech is constrained on occasions when it collides with other values and factors such as Media Violence and Political Biasness of Media Houses. Thus, to ponder over the issues pertaining to Media and Free Speech, Xavier University, Bhubaneswar, brings to you Communiqué’18 XUB.

The event will be graced by eminent media influencers, the likes of which include Meghnad Bose (Senior Correspondent, The Quint), Anna M.M. Vetticad (Independent Journalist and Author), Tejas Mehta (Communications Trainer and Political Commentator, Former Bureau Chief and Anchor at NDTV) and lastly, Sudhi Ranjan Sen (Editor, India Today Group).
