Around the world, journalists labor to report the news while under threats from governments, drug cartels and internet trolls. Russia recently arrested an American reporter working for the Wall Street Journal and journalist imprisonment is at a record high. The majority of murders of journalists go unresolved, and harsh censorship is an ever-present struggle.


Join former IOP fellow Lotfullah Najafizada, an Afghan journalist and chief executive of Amu TVJavier Garza, the founder and editor of Enredos Laguna in Mexico and an expert in journalist safety; and Anton Troianovski, the Moscow bureau chief for the New York Times, to discuss one of the two most pressing issues for the news media: safety and freedom. Moderated by Lori Montgomery of the Washington Post.


Dinner provided.
