The collection serves as a brief introduction to some of the challenges
confronting journalists when reporting on the safety, security and justice
needs of people and communities, and the related issues of public interest
about state efforts to serve and manage those needs. The articles reflect
the experiences of journalists who have worked in a variety of
conflict-affected or transitional environments around the world. Their
insights underscore the critical roles played by journalists in informing
and educating citizens, holding governments and those in power to account,
and helping to rebuild communities shattered by conflict. The ability of
journalists to report independently, accurately and with sensitivity to
the broader implications of these core issues of public interest are
integral to building more effective, accountable and responsive public
governance of safety, security and justice.
