Documenting Conflict Zones: Photojournalists vs. Influencers

Date TBA

Documenting conflict zones is not a new phenomenon, but the ethics of this are increasingly coming into focus. Photojournalists are on the frontlines documenting atrocities to inform the world of a dictator's abuses, while dictators welcome influencers to paint a false picture of the country’s state. How can we ensure that the general public can decipher between the reality of conflict zones and human rights violations versus influencers’ white-washed portrayal of the situation? This session is organized by the Human Rights Foundation.
