What is it about?

The strength of Peace Journalism training in the journalism and media sectors is the main topic of this article. It discusses the methods that journalists with prior training in Peace Journalism typically use to get around institutional obstacles to the creation of more constructive coverage. The article explains the training benefits that are transferred to the journalists (awareness and altered priorities), those that are used by the journalists in their reporting (practices), and those that produce effects beyond the journalist's approach, demonstrating the various levels of impact of Peace Journalism training in pre and post peace agreement disputes.
