Online-Workshop: Human Rights reporting

7. März 2022 @ 18:30 - 20:30

In this work­shop we will dis­cuss the poten­ti­al of jour­na­lism in
con­tri­bu­ting to human rights pro­tec­tion, awa­re­ness and deba­te, in
igno­ring, silen­cing or mis­re­pre­sen­ting human rights issues around the
world or, in extre­me situa­tions, in inci­ting hat­red, geno­ci­de and crimes
against huma­ni­ty. We will pro­vi­de insight into how jour­na­lists translate
human rights issues, reve­al­ing dif­fe­rent report­ing pat­terns and levels
of detail in report­ing, and sug­gest­ing dif­fe­rent levels of engagement
with human rights issues.


* An inter­ac­ti­ve exch­an­ge of expe­ri­en­ces on human rights reporting.
* Dis­cus­sing the most important fac­tors that encou­ra­ge or limit the
covera­ge of human rights news.

* Groun­ded in a clo­se exami­na­ti­on of the news pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses and
key moments whe­re pos­si­ble human rights sto­ries are contemplated,
deci­ded or even­tual­ly igno­red, we open up new insights into the
com­ple­xi­ties and cons­traints of human rights report­ing today.
