Hoiby’s workshop was about the threats and dangers that journalists often face when covering certain topics, and she focused especially on investigative journalism. In particular she talked about tools to assess the threats associated with various journalistic assignments and methods of mapping ones’ own strenghts and vulnerabilities.
