The Center for Media at Risk, directed by Professor Barbie Zelizer, formally launched in April 2018. Entitled “What is Media at Risk?,” its launch symposium was a cross-disciplinary conference that brought together media practitioners, media scholars, and media assist organizations to define what “media at risk” means globally in circumstances of political intimidation and what can be done to resist it.
