ARTICLE: How journalists covered Syria?


In his newly published article Robin Vandevoordt, of University of Antwerp, builds bridge between practice-based studies of war reporting and general sociological studies of journalism as a profession. The key questions are why journalists covered Syria the way they did and why they deal with challenging situations in particular ways.

The article draws on 13 in-depth interviews with Dutch and Flemish reporters and also Pierre Bourdieu’s concepts of economic, social and cultural capital on both an institutional and an individual level.
