2021 saw a huge rise in global protests. The media plays an important role in approaching this cornerstone of democracy. A protest is usually organized as a “public demonstration of disapproval” of some law, policy, idea, or state of affairs, while a riot is “a disturbance of the peace created by an assemblage of usually three or more people acting with a common purpose and in a violent and tumultuous manner to the terror of the public.”
Each year, the U.S. Department of State’s Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists brings more than 100 emerging international journalists from around the world to examine journalistic practices in the United States. Participants are nominated and selected annually by the staff at U.S. Embassies around the world based on their journalistic accomplishments and potential to advance relationships between their country and the United States.
