Independence is a core value for journalism. But with the lack of laws, institutions and unions to protect journalists and the widespread existence of popularism, bullying and systematic trolls, what are the risks for journalists working in conflict zones? In the Middle East, journalists, especially women, face extensive risk. What measures can be taken to minimize them?

Zaina Erhaim is an award-winning Syrian journalist, working as the Communication Manager with the Institute for War and Peace Reporting. Zaina received the first Annita Auspurg Award: Rebel Woman For Peace By WILFP. She was named Journalist of the Year by Reporters without Borders in 2015, one of the ‘100 Most Powerful Arab Women’ according to Arabian Business and one of the Unsung Heroes of 2016 by Reuters Thomson.
