Hawaii 2019 Journalism Workshop: Visit to East-West Centre and Simulation Game

Day two of the 2019 Hawaii Journalism Workshop included a talk on “Asia–Pacific Security: Regional Tensions and New Dimensions of Nuclear Risk”, moderated by Ota Masakatsu; a panel moderated by Alex Wellerstein focusing on “Digital Disinformation, Cyber Meddling, and Mean Tweets”; and, tailor-made for this event, an intensive simulation game that involved reporters directly and challenged them with questions on how to report a nuclear crisis situation. The event continued on day three with a roundtable discussion on “Reporting Nuclear Cybersecurity Risks and Responses” and a fireside chat that looked ahead on how to better manage risks in future.
Some more visual impression of these two days below.
