Death, violence, war, terrorism, natural disaster, the COVID-19 pandemic - at some point within the past year many journalists within Asia Pacific will have reported on a story involving interviewees who had experienced a traumatic event.

But this tip sheet brings together the collective experience of the Dart Centre Asia Pacific’s principal trainers to provide some general advice for interviewing in the aftermath of trauma, and recommendations for before, during, and after the interview.

As Kashmir is silenced, press freedom levels fall below Afghanistan and Myanmar

In September 2020, Amnesty International halted its operations in India, with the UK-based organisation publishing a report warning of a coordinated effort to silence journalists and activists in the region.
