How to Cover War–Sometimes Before It Happens
"Beyond War: Causes of Conflict, Prospects of Peace," a two-day conference organized by the Pulitzer Center, brought together reporters, policymakers, educators and others to discuss conflict transformation and peacebuilding. Panelists debated the impacts of American intervention in foreign lands, the lack of action to protect the Rohingya in Myanmar, the role of youth in promoting peace, and the best methods for reporters to keep safe in warzones, among other topics. Said Pulitzer Center Director Jon Sawyer: “The theme of this year’s conference could not be more important, or more timely: how to reframe the way we cover conflicts so as to prevent them where possible, give them the context they require, and properly apply the lessons of conflicts past.”
