More than 250 journalists are imprisoned worldwide, and in recent years scores of journalists have been injured or killed in high-profile assaults in the U.S. and abroad. The Program in Journalism invites you to join distinguished journalists and scholars as they explore the roots of, and potential responses to, violence aimed at reporters and writers. This signature event is co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
