A guideline for journalists on reporting on children

© UNICEF Cambodia/2017

The way in which the media represents children can influence how a society regards its youth. This short document has been prepared for journalists who write about various social issues and matters affecting children, and those who work with children, as well as students of journalism. The guide aims to strengthen journalists’ understanding of children’s rights, particularly as they relate to media coverage, and to establish best practices for interviewing children, as well as ways to gather stories to the public in a manner that ensures children’s best interests without exposing them to additional harms or risks. It also offers examples of how some reputable media organizations have established their own internal guidelines for reporting on children’s issues.

The document is available in both Khmer and English.
