Next Page also exchanged ideas and participated in a debate on the future development of Romani publishing. Other topics, covered by the conference, were related to Romani art, Romani language planning and codification, social construction of Romani identity, regional (Balkan) Romani identity and Romani communities in Iran, Armenia and Egypt.

New books

(JPG) Investigative Journalism. Context and Practice, ed. by Hugo De Burgh, transl. into Hungarian by Csilla Beresi (Joszoveg Muhely Kiado, Budapest 2005), supported by Media and Journalism Translation Project.

The editor Dr Hugo De Burgh and the authors of this book present the concept of investigative journalism as fed upon the increasing rationalism of the Enlightenment and the idea of truth as based on objective and impartial interpretation of facts. The study concentrates on theoretical and practical aspects of this journalistic genre in the broad context of mass media, legislation, ethics and new technologies. The authors present and analyze key events such as Watergate and the thalidomide scandal in the UK by combining interviews and interpreting the national and the local press, as well as national and regional radio and television.
