The training aimed to provide participants with a profound understanding of journalism's role in shaping narratives and influencing conflict dynamics. Participants explored the core elements of conflict studies, enabling them to critically examine the ethical dimensions of reporting on conflict situations.
Under the expert guidance of our colleague Oliver Wiechmann, Senior Consultant, at CRISP and Elira Turdubaeva, the Head of the Journalism and Mass Communications Program at International Ala-Too University in Kyrgyzstan, participants engaged in discussions and practical exercises. These activities not only enhanced their theoretical knowledge but also allowed them to put their skills into practice by addressing and covering conflict situations.
As the training concluded, participants left equipped with insights and tools to navigate the complex landscape of conflict-sensitive journalism, aiming to contribute positively to their media communities.
