Ten Years on the Front Line

This year the Frontline Club is ten and to mark the occasion we will be joined by a panel of journalists to look back on ten years on the front line.

From Iraq to Afghanistan, Libya to Syria, our panel of journalists will be reflecting on the front lines they have reported from and discussing how they have marked the past decade. They will be sharing the stories they covered and the ones that remained unreported.
