N3Con Day 2
Reporting Terrorism in Our Backyard
16:00 - 17:00
Global headlines may be dominated by ISIS, Al-Qaeda or suicide bombers in places that seem far away, but here in Asia, terrorism in many regions takes on a very human face. Cities great and small may harbor communities sympathetic to terrorism or extremism, and the reasons are often more complicated than we think. Panelists will share how they cover this dangerous and sometimes deadly beat, getting to the source of the conflict and breaking down stereotypes to reveal the reality of terrorism at our doorstep.
