The Future of Fixers in Foreign Reporting

From Iraq to Afghanistan, Libya to Syria, local fixers are increasingly being relied upon by journalists. For foreign journalists they provide essential local knowledge and the ability to communicate, but by doing so they often put themselves and their families in danger.

The uprisings in the Arab world, particularly in Libya, have put fresh scrutiny on the relationship between fixers and foreign journalists. This panel, chaired by [Charles Glass](, will ask whether journalists are taking proper responsibility for their fixers.
