Covering a country in a state of war is a dangerous and extremely challenging mission. But there is the additional complexity: as a citizen of the country at war you are expected to contribute to the country's morale and patriotism. And yet journalists cannot ignore the need to constantly hold power accountable to its actions, ask difficult questions, and bring trustworthy, fact-based stories that tell stories of the war from different perspectives. Together with participants from Ukraine and Israel, this panel will try to address these questions as well as others key risks and challenges for running a newsroom in a state of war. Moderated by Vivian Schiller.

Organised in association with Shomrim, The Center for Media and Democracy in Israel.
