Leading voices in journalism – Harinder Baweja of Hindustan Times, M R Narayanswamy of IANS and Amit Baruah of The Hindu – will offer their expertise and help shape the understanding of upcoming journalists at the two-day workshop on “Ethics of Reporting in Emergencies” being organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in New Delhi – which was announced here on the ICRC New Delhi blog earlier.

Across the globe, the ICRC organises workshops for journalists to raise awareness on the important role of the media during emergencies. Over the last few years, hundreds of journalists in the region have participated and enhanced their skills to be able to accurately and ethically report on humanitarian issues and conflict situations. The ICRC New Delhi delegation continues to provide such trainings in India, Bhutan and the Maldives.

As in the case of the previous workshops, the ICRC has received a tremendous response and only a few seats are left. Since participation is only by registration, journalists who wish to attend are requested to send a brief profile to asnehdipraha@icrc.org latest by 8 July.

Date: July 15-16, 2015

Venue: Henry Dunant Conference Hall, ICRC Office

C-6/6, SDA, Hauz Khas, New Delhi – 16
