Reporting from Zones of Conflict: Virtual Educational Exchange for Local and International Journalists

Project by 
Keith Bowen
Project Year 
2014
In zones of conflict, international journalists rely heavily on local counterparts, in partnerships that often leave much room for improvement. With dissimilar backgrounds, local and international journalists often interpret the same events from different historical, economic, and cultural perspectives. These differences can lead to misunderstanding, misinterpretation, and ill will. Reporting from Zones of Conflict will provide a virtual educational exchange, a safe space away from front lines and a time out from deadlines, for local and international journalists – students as well as practitioners – the reporters and editorial writers whom the world relies on for even-handed coverage and judicious airing of opinions.
