Reporting Conflict: New Directions In Peace Journalism

Picture of Reporting Conflict: New Directions In Peace Journalism
Journalists control our access to news. By pitching stories from particular angles, media set the agenda for public debate. In Reporting Conflict, Jake Lynch and Johan Galtung challenge reporters to tell the real story of conflicts around the world. The dominant kind of conflict reporting is what Lynch and Galtung call war journalism: conflicts are seen as good versus evil, and the score is kept with body counts. The media\'s handling of 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq highlight the one-sided reporting that war journalism creates. Peace journalism uses a wider lens: why not report what caused the conflict, and how it might be resolved? Lynch and Galtung show how journalists could have taken a broader approach to reporting conflicts like the Korean War and the NATO bombing of Kosovo to spark a more constructive public debate. This provocative book is esential reading for everyone who wants the media to tell the whole truth about conflict. New Approaches to Peace and Conflict series Series editor Professor Kevin P Clements

Picture of Time For Peace: The Essential Role of Time in Conflict and Peace Processes
Using examples such as Hurricane Katrina and regime change in Libya, Reychler shows how time is misused in conflicts – be it the failure to anticipate a disaster, or the manipulation of time to create a false sense of urgency. Based on Reychler’s 40-year experience in the field, Time for Peace is an original and important contribution to the development and peace research literature.

When Blood And Bones Cry Out: Journeys Through The Soundscape Of Healing And Reconciliation

Picture of When Blood And Bones Cry Out: Journeys Through The Soundscape Of Healing And Reconciliation
How do people heal and reconcile after violent experiences that defy words? American academic John Paul Lederach, a peacebuilding pioneer, has teamed up with his daughter, Angela Jill Lederach, to address social healing and reconciliation through metaphors, music and unforgettable stories of suffering and hope. The Lederachs challenge the traditional notion that healing and reconciliation are best understood as linear processes, instead using approaches that explore healing as circular, dynamic and ongoing in the midst of continuing violence. The powerful cases they present include a mass women's protest movement in Liberia that forces leaders to keep negotiating until a peace agreement is signed; elders in Somalia who walk between warring clans for many years to promote a meaningful dialogue; former child soldiers who run drum workshops and grow gardens in refugee camps; and victims of rape in Sierra Leone who give poetic voice to their pain. The Lederachs illustrate the healing power of sound and vibration through tales of Tibetan singing bowls, Van Morrison's transcendent lyrics and their own personal journeys. When Blood and Bones Cry Out is a groundbreaking exploration of social healing in traumatised communities.
