Migration and conflict: narrating the world on fire
With Francesca Mannocchi, May Bulman, Laura Silvia Battaglia
25 September 2022 16:30 - 17:30
Humanitarian crises have always represented some of the most tense and complex issues for journalists to cover. And they can, moreover, become the most representative events of a historical era. Ours will also be remembered for recurring migration crises, caused by political, war and environmental reasons around the world. The Mediterranean, in particular, has become one of the areas most tragically affected by these phenomena, as the news reports of recent years remind us. Three journalists with vast experience in the field, Francesca Mannocchi, Laura Silvia Battaglia and May Bulman, tell us how they “cover” these news stories, what it means to move through these scenarios, and what are the ethical challenges of journalism called upon to tell, often, the end of humanity.
