Journalism in conflict and post-conflict

A central question is where to draw the line between war and peace, when peace is seen as more than absence of war and violence. We study the role of journalism in the often very unstable post-conflict period, where a society is neither completely at war nor completely peaceful, and the risk for development in either directions is tangible. The role of media in peace building, reconciliation and memory work is also of interest here.
