How does the global media report on Syria and what is omitted?
On 29 May, English PEN and Free Word Centre hosted a panel discussion with journalists from the UK and Syria on the ways in which events in Syria are reported differently by the Syrian and international media, and how the contrast between what the two present might be mediated.
With Paul Mason (Channel 4 News Economics Editor), Zaher Omareen (Syrian writer and academic) and Armand Hurault (PR director at ASML [supporting press freedom in Syria]).
Chaired by writer and editor Malu Halasa (Syria Speaks. Saqi Books, 2014)
