Fixers, Stringers, and Foreign Crews:

The distribution of risks and emotions in crisis reporting


Mass media provide full coverage of conflicts worldwide. However, little is known about the locals working behind the scenes assisting foreign media. The Fixers and Stringers project coordinated by the University of Amsterdam investigates the collaboration, emotions, and power relations among reporters, producers, fixers, and stringers working for foreign media in Israel/Palestine and Ukraine. 

This website is a place where you can find the latest project-related updates, but also a venue where fixers, producers, stringers, and other reporters can publish their stories.
