Thu 16 March 2017, 18:15 – 20:00 GMT
Policy and Practice series: 'The importance of media in the 2017 world and why human rights needs media more than ever.'
In a world of political indifference, human rights needs the media more than ever.
But with the likes of google and Facebook selecting news feeds and creating echo chambers, and the growth in so-called fake news, the challenges facing Amnesty International are greater than ever.
Niall Couper, head of media for Amnesty UK, explains how the organisation is having to adapt.
Niall heads up the Media Team at Amnesty UK. He is the lead on media strategy, internal communications, our corporate partnerships and reputation issues. He represents Amnesty UK at a global level on our international communications groups. Niall also leads on our annual Media Awards.
