RT Media TALK
COVERING CONFLICT: DIMENSIONS, RISKS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF JOURNALISM IN THE HOT ZONE
Who are today’s war correspondents? What impact does reporting from the heart of a conflict have? How is the nature of conflict journalism evolving?
To mark the second annual Khaled Alkhateb International Memorial Awards, honouring RT Arabic freelancer Khaled Alkhateb, who lost his life while reporting from Syria in 2017, we will seek to answer these questions and more. Bringing together leading journalism and media professionals, as well as this year’s Awards winners, we will pay tribute to Khaled’s life and work, recognizing excellence in reporting on conflict the world over.
