This e-book, “Protection of Journalists: Safety and Justice in Latin America and the Caribbean,” is a compilation of 14 stories focused on four big topics: 1) coverage of protests, 2) reporting on violent conflict, 3) development of protection mechanisms, and 4) investigation and prosecution of violence against journalists. It was edited by Mexican journalist Javier Garza and coordinated by The Knight Center’s Teresa Mioli, and presents country case studies and never-before reported details of violence targeting press professionals. It includes guides on how to stay safe while reporting on protest and violent conflict. And, it looks at delays in setting up systems to protect journalists, as well as flaws in the offices meant to prevent impunity.
