Can you work with NGOs and activists and maintain your journalistic independence? Can you be a journalist and an activist at the same time? When must you take different paths? Journalists often collaborate with specialists and NGOs with a particular insight. And that may lead to important and complicated discussions with editors or indeed colleagues in other journalism cultures within the same team. How can we go about this? What are the main thoughts to consider when we decide whether to collaborate? In this session, three experienced journalists will discuss their experiences regarding collaborating with NGOs and share their thoughts on the pros and cons.
