Center for Global Peace Journalism

Current Projects

The Center for Global Peace Journalism is engaged in a number of projects in 2017. The center’s director completed projects in Cameroon and Ethiopia, and was a featured speaker at the IVOH media summit in the Catskills, NY. 

Later in 2017, we’ll be working with a prominent international human rights NGO to develop a project that includes PJ seminars for journalists in Nigeria and fellowships for those journalists at Park University. (Details soon!) In addition, the center's director will be teaching PJ seminars in Pakistan in October.

Peace Journalism

What is Peace Journalism?
Peace Journalism is when editors and reporters make choices that improve the prospects for peace. These choices, including how to frame stories and carefully choosing which words are used, create an atmosphere conducive to peace and supportive of peace initiatives and peacemakers, without compromising the basic principles of good journalism. (Adapted from Lynch/McGoldrick, Peace Journalism). Peace Journalism gives peacemakers a voice while making peace initiatives and non-violent solutions more visible and viable.

To learn more about the basics of PJ, including some key principles and how PJ can be used in daily reporting, you can download our 2-page brochure, “Peace Journalism: An Introduction.”
