Invitation to Members of the Press - Briefing: Responsible Journalism in Times of War - How Should We Report on the Russian Invasion of Ukraine?

At a press briefing on March 14, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. (CET), prominent researchers at Freie Universität Berlin will respond to questions from media representatives

The ongoing violence inflicted on Ukraine by Russia has presented journalists in Germany and across the world with significant challenges, including: How do we avoid taking on nationalistic tones? What do we mean by "ethical use of war photography"- How do we track down credible sources in Russia and Ukraine? And how do we report on the plight of refugees without separating people into "first-class" and "second-class" refugees? Researchers from Freie Universität Berlin will discuss the aforementioned issues and many more as part of an online press briefing. This event for journalists will be conducted in German. Interviews in English can be carried out afterwards.
