An in-depth session with four highly skilled field journalists who together have more than a century's worth of war and conflict reporting from nearly every violent conflict since 1990. We will explore the various genres (television, photojournalism, long-format print reportage, hard news), the challenges and success stories. We will look at lessons learnt from painful experiences, safety in the field, protecting subjects, objectivity in conflicts such as Gaza/Israel, challenging encounters and when journalism can go beyond the printed page, including advocacy and human rights reporting that can be used in tribunals and courts. We will look at the complexities of modern journalism; how to dive deep into a story whilst living in the age of Tik Tok and decreasing attention spans. And we will consider how to tell a story that is noble and just, but also compelling.
