An important publication for reporters and editors

Media and Information Studies Ph.D. candidate Miron Varouhakis offers:

Interviewing Victims of Torture: A Handbook and Guide for Journalists
(PDF - please allow time for download)

The publication is informed by Varouhakis' personal experiences interviewing victim of torture while he worked for the Associated Press in Athens. It is also based on his scholarship in the field, working with health-care professionals involved with torture victims. There are roughly a half-million victims of torture in the United States, so this is a timely and useful guide that can help working journalists report in victims of torture without re-victimizing them.
