Danger in truth; truth in danger
Special report: journalists under fire and under pressure v45 iss2



June 2016 | SAGE Publications Ltd
Investigative journalists and foreign correspondents are among the writers for our special report Danger in Truth; Truth in Danger in the latest Index on Censorship magazine. Television foreign correspondent Lindsey Hilsum thinks about why and when war zones become too dangerous to cover. Stephen Grey (who broke the story of extraordinary rendition) reports on the modern threats to reporters' keeping their sources secret,  while an Iraqi trainer of journalists investigates what measures journalists can take to stay safer. Reports come from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Belgium, Italy, South Africa, Eritrea and Turkey, among others. Also in this issue, an extract of a play by Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell that's never before published in English, and newly translated fiction from Ukraine and Romania.
