NYU Wagner presents 'Humanitarian Emergencies & The Role of the Media' - Sept. 22

September 19, 2011

Whether it's the Arab Spring, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the Libyan refugee crisis, or the famine in East Africa, the media influences and challenges what we see, think, and feel. Inspired by a comment by the late Tim Hetherington, a journalist killed in Libya while covering the war, this event brings together a distinguished panel of experts to discuss the role of media in humanitarian emergencies.
