From the Frontlines: Reporting from the Middle East

4 November 2017 @ 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM



Tune in to hear from four experienced panelists as they explore how reporting from the Middle East introduces new challenges to journalists. Viewers will be able to submit questions online for the panel to answer.

– Ray Homer, former ABC News senior producer
– Sylvène Gilchrist, CBC News documentary producer/director
– Tara Sutton, journalist & filmmaker
– Zein Almoghraby, Journalists for Human Rights senior program manager

– George Chandler, former manager, Canadian Red Cross Humanitarian Issues Program in Western Canada; current freelance facilitator and educator

Reporting from conflict zones has greatly changed over the last 15 years. With human rights violations and an environment that can be particularly difficult for foreign journalists, knowledge of IHL has become especially important for those reporting from the Middle East.
