In 1993, the image of a Sudanese child threatened by a vulture raised harsh ethical questions on media covering tragedies. The picture, however – like similar frames coming from the Horn of Africa during 2011 famine – has helped to mobilize citizens and governments.
How are “hunger stories” told today across different media outlets? Can media provide a valuable contribution in the effort to eradicate hunger and, if so, what are the ethics governing crisis journalism?
Journalists, communications experts and civil society actors will share their experience, searching for workable models of cooperation.
