Summary: 
The workshop “The Role of the Media” is organized by the Advocacy Section of UNODC. The workshop will take a closer look at the representation of human trafficking and its victims in the media. It will strive to generate a deeper understanding of the factors that have an impact on journalists’ decisions when covering the topic, and to discuss the importance of fair and balanced media coverage of the issue, particularly its victims, in order to avoid them being re-victimized and suffer any undue hardship arising from media interventions in the future. The discussion will also showcase best media practices.
