Workshop: Physical Safety & Surveillance
Safety & Security
Friday, September 27
1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
Room 2.015, HafenCity Universit├Ąt (HCU)


  • Drew Sullivan (Speaker) Editor, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project
  • Stevan Dojcinovic (Speaker) OCCRP KRIK
  • Miranda Patrucic (Speaker) Investigative Reporter / Regional Editor, Organized Crime & Corruption Reporting Project


With physical attacks on journalists at near-record highs, it has never been more important to take prudent measures to protect yourself, your colleagues, and your sources. Data from journalism safety organizations show that most assaults and murders are committed against journalists covering corruption, crime and politics, not wars and conflict zones. 

Three veteran journalists from the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, based in the rough-and-tumble Balkans, will talk about common-sense procedures to guard your safety. The workshop will include how to know if you're being followed or surveilled, best practices for meeting sources, and maintaining professional standards.
