    Reporters without Borders and UNESCO have published a handbook entitled ”Guide for Journalists.”

    The guide provides tips for journalists operating in conflict zones or other areas where there is a clear threat to safety. It summarizes international legal standards that protect the freedom of the press and offers practical advice for handling yourself during a crisis.

    Which rules do you need to follow in conflict zones? What is the first thing to be done if somebody is injured? What types of protections benefit journalists in an armed conflict? These are some of the questions this guide seeks to answer.

    The Guide for Journalists can be found at the following link:
