Ethical Choices When Journalist Go To War (Conflict Reporting in the Smartphone Era)https://ethicaljournalismnetwork.org/ethical-choices-when-journalists-go-to-war
The Ethical Journalism Network contributed the chapter, “Ethical Choices When Journalists Go to War”, as part of the publication, “Conflict reporting the in the smartphone era - from budget constraints to information warfare” ( 2016).
The EJN argues that, in times of war, people need more access to reliable information. Quality journalism is vital for people to better understand the roots and reality of conflict, to create an information space for dialogue, and to provide context and analysis that may open the door to reconciliation and peace. Without accurate and sensitive reporting that provides insights into the mindsets of all those involved, people cannot make judgments and potentially influence the course of events by giving or withholding their support for the conflict.
