Syria coverage presents ethical dilemma for peace journalists

Responsible journalists are supposed to be unbiased, to avoid advocating any agenda, and to not encourage violence—to never pour gasoline on an already blazing fire. However, the upheaval in Syria has left journalists questioning the wisdom of these traditional beliefs. 

Syria, and revolts last year during the Arab Spring, present the ultimate dilemma for a peace journalist. This breed of journalist is dedicated to giving peacemakers a voice, avoiding inflammatory language and…

Peace Journalism to be put to the test in Norway

It’s easy to say that you’re all for peace journalism—not inflaming or exacerbating conflicts while nurturing an atmosphere of peace and reconciliation—when all is well. The challenge is to practice these principles in times of violence and crisis.


Such is the case now in Norway, which is recovering from a series of deadly attacks. I have a Norwegian friend who I just heard from via Facebook. She wrote, “Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts. As of now I don't know…

Proposal to World Press Photo - Peace and Reconciliation Photography

Kyoto, Japan

Dear World Press Photo people

Nuclear weapons and mainstream media

May 9, 2009

It simply isn't right. It threatens humankind. It militates against pluralism, and the idea of public service.

The only thing your mainstream media are likely to tell you about nuclear weapons is related to, say, North Korea and Iran, i.e to the risk of proliferation to "irresponsible" states.

The very existence of nuclear weapons, nuclear possession, is not an issue. Mainstream media almost never highlight the terrorist nature of the weapons… Continue

Freedom in Balkans

Political freedom is usually described as the absence of interference with the sovereignty of an individual by the use of coercion or aggression. Often word “Liberty” - the condition in which an individual has the ability to act according to his or her own will - has been connected to freedom and social anarchists see negative and positive liberty as complementary concepts of freedom.

Nuclear dictatorship, mega-terrorism or Britney Spears

There is a lot of talk about the risks of nuclear proliferation. There is virtually no public discussion anymore about the existence of nuclear weapons, the doctrine development and the urgent need for nuclear abolition.

Media and politicians chase nuclear weapons where there are none. Conveniently, they hardly ever focus on the daily threat we all live under: the malfunctioning or deliberate use of nuclear weapons by those who have by far the greatest… Continue
