In 2021, the Center for Global Peace Journalism is continuing its work both virtually and, beginning in the fall, face to face. The center has hosted Zoom meetings for journalists in Yemen, as well as joint seminars featuring participants from both India and Pakistan. Planned in-person projects include one in Nepal, and a second working with young journalists in Turkey.

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.
