Philippines: insights from the senior editors' conference in Manila

Fifty media leaders from the Asia-Pacific region shared their views and concerns on 13 and 14 October at a "Reporting on violence and emergencies" conference hosted by the International Committee of the Red Cross. The media of East Asia, South-east Asia and the Pacific have an important role to play in covering conflict, violence and the issues faced by vulnerable groups. At times, reporting on these situations puts the media's own safety at risk. We have collected some of the participants' comments.

In breakout groups, journalists and a handful of ICRC and Philippine Red Cross representatives share various points of view as they finalize the recommendations that led to the Manila Declaration.
