Foreign and international editors from leading news agencies and print, broadcast and online news media organizations in the U.S. and Canada will gather on November 15, 2019, at the offices of The Associated Press headquarters in New York for a meeting of the International Press Institute (IPI) Foreign Editors’ Circle.

The meeting is being organized by IPI’s North American Committee in partnership with The Associated Press. It will be the seventh gathering of the Foreign Editors’ Circle, a forum begun by IPI in 2013 to provide a place for foreign editors from the U.S. and Canada to discuss common problems, issues of safety, and best practices for gathering international news.

Previous gatherings held at The New York Times (2018) and at the Washington Post (2017) focused on the Trump administration’s effect on international relations and America’s place in the world as well as cybersecurity and disinformation.

This year’s Circle will cover the following topics:
The State of our World – Concerns about International Reporting and Foreign Coverage
Cyber-meddling, the Media and Democracy
The Power of the Image in Foreign Coverage

Foreign editors from a range of major publications will be represented at the meeting, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press, Reuters, Los Angeles Times, NPR, ProPublica and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
