On our peace mission

How can journalistic offerings in Lebanon and Afghanistan be de-escalating and peace-building? Through research, prototyping and innovation methods, the Media for Peace fellows develop content formats, platforms or technologies with which journalism can achieve more peace in both regions.

We have deliberately chosen two very different countries; a country whose everyday life has been marked by war and conflict for a long time and a country in post-conflict status. This difference enables us to take a comparative approach, especially with regard to the question of how peace processes, supported by journalism, can succeed.
