M100 Sanssouci Colloquium
Building on Potsdam's historic role as a focus for dialogue between East and West, and in the face of increasingly complex and important challenges emanating from Russia, the Middle East and Far East, the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium has developed into a significant ‘East-West Media Bridge'. The Colloquium has become an annual meeting point of media and public figures from across today's most sensitive geo-political and communal fault lines. The Colloquium aims to foster cross-continental media relations, exposing not only differences, but also commonalities in the challenges faced by media from different cultures and geographies.
Between 2005 and 2009, ISD co-organised the M100 Colloquium.

M100 Colloquium, September 2009
Based on interviews in Germany, France and the UK, this research explores patterns of media consumption amongst European Muslims and the portrayal of Muslims within mainstream European media. Its findings served as the basis for discussions at the 2009 M100 Sanssouci Colloquium.
The 2008 M100 Sanssouci Colloquium conference focused on the media in Eurasia. Participants included journalists and media executives from Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, and several Central Asian republics.
In 2007 the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium focused on dialogue between members of the Middle Eastern media and their counterparts from Europe, to explore how they affect public perceptions and social harmony amongst their audiences and interpret their roles and responsibilities vis-à-vis society, politics and the reporting of international affairs.
