Reporting the Refugee Crisis

During the past few weeks the media all over Europe have been extensively reporting on the refugee and migrant crisis. Despite most of them reporting responsibly, a number of questions have been raised about the limits of publishing sensitive images. The debate will focus on the importance of ethical reporting, the roles and responsibilities of media and journalists in countering stereotypes and hate speech in traditional and online media.

Join the European Broadcasting Union and the European Federation of Journalists for a moderated panel discussion followed by a Q&A. The panel will be moderated by Committee to Protect Journalists EU Correspondent, Jean-Paul Marthoz. The panellists will discuss whether it's feasible to factually tell a human-focused story that is highly emotional, without sensationalism and dehumanising migrants and refugees and, if so, how to do so.
