Play • 51 min

With the help of Journalism Practice Editor-in-Chief Bonnie Brennen, Professor Emerita at Marquette University, in the U.S., we discuss in this episode ethical aspects of covering and researching major conflicts of the news day. Avery Holton, Chair of the Department of Communication at the University of Utah, in the U.S., highlights his work on online conflict that emerges in the way of harassment of journalists. And Ryan Wallace, a doctoral student in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, in the U.S., explores the human and ethical treatment of the climate conflict and its influence on the forced migration of climate refugees.
