At the IAMCR conference in Istanbul in July, there will be two
panel/discussions on Peace Journalism as an innovative and
constructive approach to conflict reporting. The first is in the
Journalism Research & Education section program, Friday, July 15, 9 -
10.30 a.m. The second is in the International Communication program,
Saturday July 16, 4.30 - 6 p.m.
The chairs of those two respective panels (Robert Hackett, Simon
Fraser University; and Jake Lynch, University of Sydney) would like
to invite interested IAMCR participants to an informal meeting, to
discuss ideas for potential collaborative research, based on the
analytical tools and research agenda of Peace Journalism. At the
very least, we hope to expand the international network of
communication scholars, educators, and practitioners interested in
exploring and potentially pursuing this relatively new paradigm.
Subject to confirmation, the meeting is tentatively scheduled for
Saturday July 16, noon, in room D114.
An introduction to Peace Journalism, together with links to key scholarly and
Other documents on the subject, can be found on the wikipedia page at:

Galtung, Reporting Conflict (University of Queensland Press, 2010).
