The exploitative practices by Western media in the Global South, always present for the proper coverage of marginalized and vulnerable groups, capture groundbreaking events from communities when a disaster occurs. How can the media influence positive development outcomes rather than merely reenforce the current exploitative framework ?

In this panel, we examine these issues from within the context of exploitation; we have also seen the structural barriers embedded in activities carried out primarily by Western media, which forms the focus of the work of Unbias The News that covers parachute journalism and challenges power imbalances and the status-quo.

Organised in association with Unbias The News.
