The Victims and the Past project team are proud to announce that our guidelines on media engagement were launched at Queen’s University Belfast on 5 March 2019. Following extensive consultation with victims and survivors and journalists and editors, two sets of guidelines – one for victims and survivors on media engagement and one for journalists, editors and educators on how to engage with victims and survivors and report on legacy issues – were produced. For ease of use, two sets of ‘essential tips’ taken from the above guidelines were also developed. Copies of the guidelines can be found below. Please feel free to use these and distribute them throughout your networks.
