According to a just-released report by Reporters sans frontières / Reporters Without Borders / RSF, Afghanistan was the world’s deadliest country for journalists in 2018, with 15 killed. Syria followed, with 11 murdered, and Mexico had nine journalists killed in 2018. The fatal shooting of five employees of the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland in June moved the United States into the ranks of the deadliest countries.

Physical assault, violent rhetoric and online attacks are becoming alarmingly common. This lecture will detail safety strategies, awareness and planning for all your assignments, from domestic protests and covering crime to conflict zones on foreign assignments.
