UNESCO: “Terrorism and the Media: A Handbook for Journalists”


The publication provides a step-by-step guide for both journalists who routinely cover terror attacks and for those who do not, but find themselves suddenly in the midst of one. Developed specifically for reporters, media professionals and journalism students, the “Terrorism and the Media” handbook covers topics such as the journalistic “framing” of terrorism; the balance between freedom, security and responsibility; the handling of figures, images and words; the security of journalists; and relations with victims, authorities and terrorist groups.
