Communicating Peace: Writing for the Media at Online

September 15, 2012 to October 15, 2012
Why is it important for peacebuilders to communicate peace in the media? Because policy decisions are shaped and formed in the media. This is where major decisions are deliberated on every conflict imaginable, from foreign wars to local laws related to violent crime. Every policy issue under the sun is first discussed in the media. Thus, if peacebuilders want to shape the course a conflict takes, this is the medium in which we must engage.This “Writing for the Media” Class offered by the…See More

We are willing to offer our best in seeing that lasting change has occurred in the communities we get to work with. Humanitarian aid workers are among the groups that always give all their energies in the most of difficult conditions without any second thoughts on their self. The other groups include the military that have to make sacrifices for their countrymen. But when should any of…See More

Exit strategy: How elaborate are these when moving out?

When organizations begin the process of moving away from their location, to be able to respond to other areas with greater needs, there are issues which may be overlooked in that exit. Are there lessons you may have learnt that would guide such processes. I know that organizations, relying on their successes and failures, are able to craft meticulous plans on what moves them to the next area. These strategies might not capture all the various organs of the project's day to day running. Do we…See More

To say that the violence was just as a result of the election dispute would be to over-simplify the root causes of the real monster. The Post Election Violence or PEV had built itself from other…
