Editors and news directors from 16 major news organizations in Indian and Pakistan will meet for a two-day dialogue in Colombo. The Gatekeepers will look at shared challenges and new directions in their newsrooms, cross-border media coverage between their countries, stories that are most interesting to their audiences, issues that can be covered region-wide, and building information networks to call upon for covering cross-border stories. Facebook and faculty at Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University have been invited to  present workshops, and Sri Lanka’s Minister of Finance and Mass Media Mangala Samaraweera has been invited to speak to the group. The dialogue is part of a bigger media initiative that included cross-border reporting trips and dialogues among Indian and Pakistani journalists starting in 2015.
