You are kindly invited to a book presentation by the award winning journalist Boštjan Videmšek, titled ‘Dispatches from the Frontlines of Humanity’, that was recently published in English by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. The event will be moderated by foreign correspondent Adrijan Bakič from RTV Slovenia.
Dispatches from the Frontlines of Humanity is an in-depth reportage on some of the most defining issues of our time, namely the global refugee crisis, the conflicts displacing these masses of humanity, and the causes behind them. It is also an ode to the vanishing art of the long-form feature or reportage, which is disappearing because many media organisations can no longer afford it, or are unwilling to pay for this kind of time-consuming, on-the-ground journalism.
This book showcases a keen eye for the human story and a profound commitment to the human family. By telling the stories, it helps put a human face on the suffering that is too often viewed statistically and quantitatively.
Boštjan Videmšek is an award-winning Slovenian journalist, war correspondent, and playwright. He is the author of several books about wars, conflicts, migration, refugees, the Arab Spring, and the Greek financial crisis, including 21st Century Conflicts: Remnants of War(s). His articles and stories have been published in The New York Times, Politico, Le Figaro, Der Spiegel, Aftenposten, El Periodico, Sydney Morning Herald, Middle East Eye, and Atlantic Post, among others. He has reported from all major conflicts in last 20 years, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Darfur, South Sudan, Pakistan, Gaza, Libya, Somalia, and Kosovo.
