Peace and Reconciliation Journalism in Kenya

 According to my Kenyan professor colleague, his country is in need both of peace journalism and of reconciliation. In the project that we're launching next week, we're teaching both.

Our "Peace and Reconciliation Journalism" project will be taught in rural Kenya for the benefit of radio journalists, since radio is of paramount importance in Kenya. We'll be focusing not only on avoiding partisan and inflammatory speech, and giving voice to the voiceless, but the use of radio as a tool to heal communities torn apart by violence.

Stay tuned to this site for updates and photos.
