Former Danish Media Director to Speak in Edinburgh

No discussion these days about the media in Denmark is without reference to a set of cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad – which were published three-and-a-half years ago in the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Poste – and which provoked diplomatic sanctions and threats from Islamic militants across the Muslim world.

And a keen observer of the Danish media is to speak at a meeting next month organised by the Edinburgh Freelance branch of the National Union of Journalism.

Kim Minke, is the new director of the Danish Cultural Institute in Edinburgh, but between 1994 and three years ago he was the director of the Danish School of Journalism, in Aarhus.

He'll be in conversation with political commentator, Iain Macwhirter.
