Ahmed Rashid, Author, Pakistan on the Brink
Elizabeth Rubin, Independent Journalist and Author, Roots of Impunity: Pakistan's Endangered Press
Chair: Gareth Price, Senior Research Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House
The speakers will discuss the challenges faced by journalists in Pakistan. They will argue that although the media is robust and the industry is growing, the ability of journalists to investigate vital stories is severely curtailed by deteriorating security and failures of justice when journalists are murdered.
