ethics in the news
In the eighth of our series of ‘Ethics in the News’ events at the Frontline Club, Hannah Storm, director and CEO of the Ethical Journalism Network, will be speaking to Rana Sabbagh a founder of Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ).
Rana will discuss the challenges of running an investigative journalism organisation based in Jordan and working with journalists in extremely difficult circumstances around the region with Sarah Giaziri , Director of the Frontline Freelance Register, and Mark Hunter, who has worked with ARIJ to develop the ‘Story-Based Inquiry’ approach to investigative journalism.
We will also hear from BBC Special Correspondent Nawal Al-Maghafi and Mohamed Aboelgheit about their experience reporting from Yemen and other countries in the region.
Our panel discuss sexual harassment within media organisations and how best to tackle the problem. How do we make this a conversation that includes both men and women? And is this a problem that is predominant in the media world, given the fragile freelance contracts of many journalists, or have they simply been provided with a larger platform to air their grievances than women in other industries?
In 2015, as refugees wind their way across Europe they are accompanied by a pack of fellow travellers – reporters, camera-operators, producers and news vans. British director, Orban Wallace, turns the camera in a new direction: the world’s 24-hour news gatherers in pursuit of the breaking story.
