Describes her struggle for editorial freedom in the Philippines and how Rappler tries to reach out with news from a country undergoing great change.

In January 2018, the news website Rappler had its license to operate withdrawn. Ressa describes it as an attack on freedom of speech.

(Sweden's national television channel)

Talks about the revelations in ‘Fallet Kevin’ (The Kevin case) documentary – a production that essentially reopened Sweden's most sensational criminal case.

Josefsson received a tip from a psychologist relating to the investigation of the murder of Kevin, a four-year-old boy, in the town of Arvika in 1998. The tip became the catalyst for a documentary that would contribute to clearing the names of two brothers accused of committing the brutal crime. Josefsson will explain how his work impacted upon the police and changed the outcome of their investigation.

Avsløringen av verdens største overgrepsforum - 7 måneder senere. Hva ble konsekvensene? Einar Otto Stangvik, Håkon Høydal & Natalie Remøe Hansen, VG

    

   

VG JOURNALISTS EINAR OTTO STANGVIK, HÅKON HØYDAL AND NATALIE REMØE HANSEN

VG journalists Einar Otto Stangvik, Håkon Høydal and Natalie Remøe Hansen discuss how the uncovering of the largest abuse website on the dark web is an important development for society.

In 2017, thanks to a combination of complex data analysis and journalistic methods, VG revealed that Australian police were operating the dark web’s largest abuse site, sharing images of, and promoting, abuse. The VG journalists will explain  why the case is important and what has happened in its aftermath.

 

Dette er de norske overgriperne Ingunn Røren & Helle Aarnes, Aftenposten A-Magasinet

AFTENPOSTEN JOURNALISTS INGUNN RØREN AND HELLE AARNES

Ingunn Røren and Helle Aarnes achieved something the Norwegian Police couldn’t. They delved deep into 89 Norwegian criminal cases to systematically analyse information relating to men who shared abusive, extreme images of their own and other people’s children. The two pioneering journalists succeeded in profiling these paedophiles - on the face of it, normally family men - while also finding that they themselves had nowhere to turn to to seek help. Their important findings now form an important part of the police’s, and other supporting organizations, understanding of this form of activity, and the men who undertake it.
