The Ethics of Investigative Journalism: four case studies
Tiania Stevens gives an account of her career as a journalist, which included time spent as an embedded reporter during the Iraq war.
Tiania is in the last stages of a Ph.D. in the School of Communication and Arts at the University of Queensland. Her thesis (‘Approaching Lives in the Aftermath: Journalism and the empathetic representations of Bosnian Muslim male testimonies of life after the concentration camps’) engages with questions and problems concerning humanitarian journalism in the media representation of camp survivors of the war in Bosnia in the 1990s.
Training in journalism at the Queensland University of Technology, Tiania worked as a a journalist in Australia, throughout Africa, Europe, and the United Kingdom. She is an experienced defence reporter, traveling with Coalition forces (US and UK) during the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, during which she worked from several countries in the Middle East, filing stories for a number of national UK publications, including the London Times. Outside theatres of war, she has extensive professional journalist experience of the Balkans, particularly Bosnia, a country she has visited for both journalistic and academic purposes almost every year since 1999. Tiania has also conducted a wide range of undercover investigative journalism stories for national publications.
Tiania completed a Master’s degree in War Studies at King’s College, University of London, before taking up her doctoral studies. For the last five years, she has taught journalism at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), covering topics including international, ethics, journalistic inquiry, investigations, computational, news writing and online journalism.
