publication cover Working with Media to Prevent Conflict: Cluster Synthesis Report

Author(s): Zuleika Candan and Richard Reeve (International Alert)
2012-06-01

The Media, Information Flows and Conflict cluster has aimed to understand how information flows can contribute to or undermine peace in post-conflict countries and what challenges media face in reporting accurately and responsibly. Drawing on engagement and research in Liberia, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Timor-Leste and southeastern Europe, this synthesis addresses three broad questions: how people access information in conflict-affected countries; how this information influences the peace they experience; what challenges media face in providing reliable information. This synthesis concludes with seven suggested principles for engagement by the EU and other donors with media in conflict-affected countries.
