The purpose of this workshop is to make sure journalists are aware of their personal safety in dangerous situations and how to deal with the government protocol and their own mental health in times of chaos. International war correspondent Abeer Saady has joined this conference as a trainer. 

Dr Altaf Khan, the Dean of Humanities, inaugurated the workshop. In his opening remarks, he said, “Violent events create an ecosystem and it is important to revisit protocols to understand the system."
