An average of two journalists are killed every week carrying out their work. Most are local journalists investigating crime and corruption and their killers are seldom found. Ten years ago the news industry combined to found the International News Safety Institute to promote best practise for safe reporting, to offer training around the world and to lobby government to support independent journalism. To mark its 10th anniversary, this panel discussion will consider what progress has been made in the last decade? How has safety for journalists changed? What are the new issues to consider - and how can the news industry tackle impunity and get greater support for the rights of journalists to work safely.
Organised in association with International News Safety Institute
