Libya, much more than a project
When we speak of “projects” we go far beyond an awareness campaign or a specific field research in a far flung region. An eloquent example of what we´re saying can be found in Libya.
Karlos Zurutuza was one among hundreds -even thousands- of reporters attracted by that black hole whose gravitational field sucked news and newspaper from around the world in the Spring of 2011. After months of covering that war on different fronts, he kept travelling to the country year after year and filing articles for international media outlets. Over the last decade he´s also given dozens of talks and conferences about a country which soon lost most of the international attention it had gathered, and he went on to publish a book (“Tierra adentro, vida y muerte en la ruta libia hacia Europa”) in 2017.
“One needs to go back to keep telling the story,” he repeats. And it´s not just about Libya.
