MEDIAWAR: Covering conflicts after Iraq

Media workers and academics discuss the reporting of the Iraq war to launch the 'Mediawar' issue of the journal Mediactive.


Roger Mosey, Head of Television News, BBC
Kim Sengupta, The Independent
Professor Maire Messenger Davies, Director for the Centre of Media Research, University of Ulster
Dr Jonathan Rutherford, Managing Editor of Mediactive and Reader in Cultural Studies, Middlesex University
Jake Lynch, Director, Reporting the World

Britain was taken to war on false premises, and many readers and audiences were none the wiser till after the event. Why? Where did it go wrong, and can such failings be avoided in covering future conflicts and crises? To mark the launch of the Mediactive 'Mediawar' issue, academics, media workers and journalism think-tank Reporting the World will be discussing the lessons of the Iraq war for the reporting of international news.  

The event is supported by The University of Ulster, Middlesex University, The Lipman Milliband Trust and Roehampton University.
