Safe media in conflict and chaos

Over the last couple of years, it has become extremely difficult to work with media issues in a variety of difficult contexts. (Self-)censorship, increasing dangers related to the working environments, and impunity issues are all parts of the same complex.

By inviting a number of media representatives with experience from working in, or supporting actors in, environments of conflict and/or chaos we hope to be able to discuss todays situation for journalists and other actors in media – but also best practices and potential solutions that could safeguard the activities of a free and independent media in places where it is crucially needed.
