Terrorism and the Media: Reporting in the UK - Paper Launch
In this paper, produced from the second phase of the research, author Dr Jessica White of RUSI’s Terrorism and Conflict Research Group outlines the many dynamics and factors which contribute to how, what, why, where and when news outlets publish articles on terrorism – and how these dynamics and factors shape either the subsequent negative or positive impact of the reporting. The information relationship that exists between the police – as public security providers and the primary source of official information – and the media – as a primary conveyer of public information – emerged as an important dynamic.
Speakers will be:
- Assistant Commissioner of Specialist Operations Neil Basu, Head of Counter-Terrorism Policing
- Ian Murray, Executive Director of the Society of Editors
- Charlotte Dewar, Chief Executive of the Independent Press Standards Organisation
- Dr Jessica White, RUSI Research Fellow, Terrorism and Conflict Group
This event will include a Q&A session and we welcome the pre-submission of questions, which can be emailed to Sabrina Downey, Events Director, RUSI prior to the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
