ICTalk - Taiwan: Its Role in WHO, China and Global Policy

It is not uncommon to see journalists enter dangerous or risky situations for the sake of informing the public. Given today's crisis and demands for factual information, journalists need to evaluate what is essential and what is not. The challenge remains for reporters covering this story to find new ways to do their work while staying safe, especially photographers.

Join the International Community of the Society of Professional Journalists as we talk about this with Gavin Phipps, the morning news anchor for ICRT, the English language-radio in Taiwan. We will be talking about Taiwan and the WHO (and how it affects dealing with COVID-19); Taiwan’s relations with China and how movement by China and the Hong Kong government to restrict civil rights affects the democratic institutions in Taiwan. And, why the rest of the world should pay attention to Taiwan. We will dig deeper into his journalistic work in our one-on-one conversation.
