In response to the spike in incidences of threat and intimidation of journalists in Pakistan in recent times, Intermedia (www.intermedia.org.pk), an independent Pakistani media development organization, has put together this practical safety guidebook for journalists covering conflict. The guidebook has been prepared in consultation with media professionals including reporters, editors and newsroom staff to include best practices for protection of journalists working in a theatre of conflict. Practical and concise, journalists would be able to carry it in pocket and consult it for quick reference. In addition to chapters on rights, threats and safety guidelines, it has contacts for journalist bodies and support groups that reporters can reach out to in case of infringement of press freedoms or direct threats. This guidebook also brings together safety guidelines suggested by journalist unions, media professionals and organizations upholding press freedoms in the hope to make it available to reporters in one compact handbook.
