JOURNALISM AT RISK - SAFETY & PROFESSIONALISM IN A DANGEROUS WORLDEvents in the Arab World generate a big share of the world’s global coverage these days. Political upheaval and social change. Technical innovation and press freedom restrictions. Booming social media platforms and powerful state-controlled news outlets. The Arab World is a source of debate, controversy and inspiration, and the 2016 IPI World Congress was there, in Doha, Qatar. From 19 to 21 March 2016, the Congress looked at important ongoing developments in the region’s media landscapes, placed them in an international context and identified trends and patterns as well as the best practices for journalists to be able to cover events timely, safely and independently. At the congress, a 15 minute slideshow of the Alfred Fried Photography Award 2015 was shown.
