Deutsche Welle: Germany’s media calling card for the world

Nearly 90 million people around the world trust Deutsche Welle (DW) as a source of reliable and credible information. The broadcaster’s mission is to ensure that Germany is seen as an “independent nation with its roots in European culture and as a liberal, democratic, constitutional state based on the rule of law”. DW’s journalistic portfolio, including television, radio and online services, provides a forum in Europe and on other continents to German and other points of view on important issues, with the aim of “foster­­ing understanding and exchange between cultures and people.” In addition, it will contribute to promoting the German lan­­guage. It fulfills this statutory mission with a television channel broadcast in German, English, Arabic and Spanish, and with radio and online services in 30 languages. DW employs a staff made up of media professionals from 60 countries. Its main headquarters is in Bonn with television studios in Berlin.

DW is targeted to people around the world who are interested in Germany and Europe.

DW-Akademie has been training broad­­casting professionals from developing and transition countries for more than four decades. It also offers a media-re­lated, intercultural communication train­­ing pro­­gram for German executives who are being sent abroad.
