A workshop on ‘Understanding the Impact of Media Terrorism Reporting : A Front Line Practitioner’s Perspective’ will be held on the 12th of November 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden at Exit Sweden. This event is organised within the framework of the NBTC funded research project “Developing a Broadcasting Model to CVE – Year 5” by Victoria University and Exit Sweden in partnership and with the support of the National Broadcasting Commission of Thailand, VOX-Pol, and the EU RAN. This workshop is part of a series of workshops on Media and CVE that Dr. Virginie Andre is running in Europe, Northern America and Morocco.
This workshop follows on from the Roundtable on “Understanding the Impact of Media Terrorism Reporting” held in London on January 30-31, 2018, in partnership with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs, New Scotland Yard, the Egmont Institute and the EU RAN. The perspectives of CVE and media practitioners, academics and policy makers were brought together to formulate best practice recommendations for media handling of terrorism that balances need for security, including diminishing the effectiveness of terrorism output, and the media’s interests.
This workshop will focus primarily on formulating applied outcomes in countering violent extremism in relation to terrorist event reporting, with the aim of developing guidelines on best practices in reporting on terrorist events, and outlining strategic communications in post-terrorist attacks.
