Abstract
Quick take:
- In a recent webinar, journalists who cover long-simmering enmities between neighboring countries discussed facing political pressure, entrenched attitudes of ethnic and religious animosity, lack of access to sources, disinformation, and threats to their personal safety
- Journalists were among the casualties during the recent conflict in Gaza, and several were imprisoned
- Panelists cited rising nationalism in East Asia as a barrier to impartial reporting on longstanding disagreements between Japan and South Korea
- Journalists in India and Pakistan are unable to report effectively on each other's countries because of “high walls” that leaders have built between the nations.
