Covering Refugees: Roundtable with Journalists from Europe, the Middle East, North & Central America

11/10/17, 3:59 PM

About this event

WHAT: Riveted by images of boats going down and walls going up, torn apart by opposed humanitarian and security pulls, the citizens of Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas are struggling to cope with the myriad effects of the largest refugee movements in a century. Trying to make sense of these crises is a profession itself in crisis – factual, accurate, objective journalism is under fire. Learn the story behind the stories from key reporters representing leading news media in all four regions!
