Investigating Islamism

I was part  panel that discussed how journalists in the West should approach Islamism.

The Panel: Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi @ajaltamimi, Janina Findeisen@j_findeisen, Kevin B. Lee @alsolikelife, Tam Hussein, @tamhussein and @James__Harkin

The questions we explored: 

How far should a journalist go when it comes to investigating radical Islamism, and what are the dangers? What methods work best – undercover reporting online, the interpretation of documents, social media analysis, documentary or on-the-ground reporting? What are the risks, and how do we manage them? Are there any transferable lessons from investigating the extreme right?
