This event is about the journalists who report on humanitarian crises today. It launches a major new report from Martin Scott, Kate Wright and Mel Bunce, The State of Humanitarian Journalism, based on four years of research. This report shows which news outlets report on humanitarian issues, how they frame their stories, and what audiences think about this news.
A panel of leading journalists and media commentators will discuss the findings and their own experiences reporting on humanitarian crises, including:
- Josephine Schmidt, Executive Editor at IRIN, the world’s oldest humanitarian newswire
- James Copnall, Newsday presenter, BBC World Service
- Tom Law, Director of Campaigns and Communications, The Ethical Journalism Network
- Stefanie Glinski, Freelance journalist and photographer, currently based in Afghanistan.
This is followed by a screening of the celebrated documentary, ‘Another News Story’ about the journalists who reported on the 2015 ‘refugee crisis’ in Europe.
