Kidnapping Risk in Remote Places: A Professional View


Global instability and rise of stateless, often violently anti-western groups around the world have put journalists in the crosshairs more than ever. At the same time, the traditional structures that once provided support for journalists deployed in remote places have fallen away as the newspaper and broadcast industry has slimmed down in the face of new digital economic realities. To help journalists understand the risks and realities of kidnapping incidents, the Overseas Press Club presents an OFF-THE-RECORD meeting featuring William Daly, Managing Director of Control Risks, the world’s leading kidnapping and ransom response consultancy, OPC member Charles Sennott, founder and executive director of the GroundTruth Project and David Rohde, investigative reporter for Thomson Reuters. 

The program begins at 6:30 p.m. Stop by for a reception and cash bar at 6:00 p.m.

Please RSVP by emailing patricia@opcofamerica.org or calling the OPC at 212 626-9220.
