Waking the World: Seeking to Ensure Governments Do Not Look Away from Horror

Part of the series 'Headlines and Lifelines: The Media and Genocide', examining the role of the media in the reporting of genocide.

After 1945, the phrase "never again" was frequently heard. But politicians have in past years still seemed eager to turn away from crimes against humanity and genocide - in Rwanda, Darfur and elsewhere. What are the opportunities and challenges in the 21st Century? What is the role of traditional and new media in the reporting of atrocities? Where do non-Governmental organisations fit in? And what difference can any of us, as individuals, make?

Steve Crawshaw, a former journalist at the Independent, is now International Advocacy Director at Amnesty International. He is co-author of Small Acts of Resistance: How Courage, Tenacity and Ingenuity Can Change the World.
