How journalists in Mexico and Honduras survive

What’s on offer?

A talk on the risks facing journalists in Mexico and Honduras

What’s it about?

How would you cope if you were constantly under attack for simply doing your job? What if there was no punishment for the attackers and the authorities were a part of the problem? This is the case for journalists in Mexico and Honduras, who are at risk of violence on a daily basis. 

Dr Tamsin Mitchell shares her research into the strategies journalists use to stay safe and protect their wellbeing while investigating and reporting on corruption, drugs trafficking and human rights violations. This talk celebrates the resistance, resilience and dedication of Mexican and Honduran journalists to mark the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.  Tamsin will be in conversation with Prof Jackie Harrison, UNESCO Chair on Media Freedom, Journalism Safety and the Issue of Impunity. 

Who’s leading the event?
