Post your Global Response Explainer in the week No. 7a Discussion forum when it is up. Then you will be asked to comment on two other colleague’s findings. Week 8: Wednesday, Dec. 9, at 11:30 p.m. Field work! (5%) (Report of up to 1,000 words) You are going to cover or conduct research around your crisis! You will be going for 10 days. You have backgrounded yourself on the crisis and you know it well. Now you have to prepare to do the actual reporting or research and do it safely. Write a report and address these questions (depending on where you are going – you do not have to answer all of these): 1.) Preparations. Where are you going? Where do you fly into? Where will you stay? Do you need a fixer or a translator – who might that be? Where do you need to travel to within the area (for example, a border city or a refugee camp?) What do you need to do to prepare? What are your health and safety concerns and how will you address them? What do you have to take and what do you have to leave behind? What do you have to have ready on the ground for when you arrive (Translator? Fixer? Car – regular or 4-wheel? Driver or can you drive? Hotel room or guest house or friend? Booked?) Permits, visas and permissions needed? What equipment (cameras, tripods, etc.) do you need? Take or rent there? 2.) Sources for research or reporting. Who will be your sources? Remember sources are documents, representatives from organizations and your own observation. List them from all three groups. What in-depth and high-quality articles or reports from earlier assignments will you rely on for factual background information and upon which to base your questions. List as you would in an annotated List of References and include a URL if there is one. Who do you need to interview on the ground there? Officials? People effected by the crisis? Aid workers or officials? Other journalists? Other researchers? U.N. officials? Emergency agencies with the government? Who do you need for background? Who to explain? Who to serve as examples of the problem? Compile a list of questions you want answered and specifically who you think can answer them. What you think you need to observe there? Where do you need to go? How will you get there? Permissions? Officials?
