Ethical reporting of the Afghan crisis, asylum and refugees
By Jens Sorensen
As the NUJ Netherlands representative on the NUJ’s Ethics Council, I attended an online public meeting on Thursday, 7 October, which discussed the Afghan crisis’s ethical reporting, asylum and refugees. The NUJ Ethics Council event, chaired by the council’s chair, Professor Chris Frost, was very interesting. It was especially heart-rending to see and hear BBC news producer Farhad Mohammadi, who had recently left Kabul to come to the UK, emotional talk about his own ‘escape’ and the fate of a large number of colleagues and their families left behind. Other engaging contributions came from journalist and author Daniel Trilling; NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet; and IFJ deputy general secretary Jeremy Dear.
