Professor and Crossings Senior Research Fellow Chris Chavez recently attended a UNESCO Conference on reporting in Nairobi, Kenya. Research fellow Emerson Malone spoke with Chavez on the role journalists can play when reporting conflict-sensitive subjects such as immigration, tribal and religious conflicts in the area.

Part one of this series examines the challenges Kenyan journalists face when reporting intercultural stories in a complicated sector.

Part two of this series covers integrity, ethics and sensitivity toward subjects, including a discussion on how local journalists choose to report figures in the terrorist group Boko Haram.

These stories were produced by Nathan Stevens.
