Conflict and the role of the Media PDF Print

This pamphlet was commissioned by International Media Support (IMS) as a follow up to the conference hosted in Copenhagen in November 2004. Part one sets out IMS’ understanding of modern conflict and the role the media can play in either exacerbating or alleviating violence.

Part Two examines the role of different actors and summarises the recommendations IMS suggests each actor consider. We do so not in an arrogant spirit where we claim special knowledge of these problems and all of our recommendations are based upon discussions with the actors themselves. What IMS has done is to try to bring together the collective wisdom of those in the international community who have been working to support the media in conflict.
