The murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi has jeopardized America’s support for the Saudi monarchy and highlighted the West’s willingness to tolerate or ignore repressive behaviour in its allies. Historian, biographer, journalist and editor Sam Tanenhaus and award-winning CBC journalist Susan Ormiston will discuss the consequences of the murder and consider how they relate to the threats and violence faced by thousands of working journalists in other parts of the world.
Moderated by Brendan de Caires, Executive Director of PEN Canada.
