In The Public Square: The challenge of covering China
How should journalists understand China's ever-more-aggressive actions in the West Philippine Sea?

MANILA, Philippines – At the 2024 International Media Conference, the focus has been on crucial issues related to the future of  journalism. One much-anticipated session is devoted to the challenge of covering China for the international media.

How should the media report on China? And how should journalists understand its ever-more-aggressive actions in the South China Sea and in the West Philippine Sea?

Kamp has extensive experience reporting on Asia since the late 1990s, having been based previously in Singapore, and now since 2021 back in Beijing.
