Article: CIMA report: The Unexamined Past and Uncertain Future of Peacekeeping Radio

CIMA  released the report, Broadcasting in UN Blue: The Unexamined Past and Uncertain Future of Peacekeeping Radio, done by Bill Orme, who served for the past seven years at the United Nations Development Program as a senior advisor on media development and strategic communications.  Orme is a former executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists and has been a foreign correspondent for The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times. From Cambodia to Liberia, radio stations established by UN peacekeeping missions have helped end violent conflict and make political transition possible. They have provided citizens with trusted local news programs and nonpartisan discussion forums, often for the first time. But a lack of long-term UN planning and commitment to media development as an integral part of post-peacekeeping democratization have often made these achievements disappointingly ephemeral. This report examines the role that peacekeeping radio stations have played in post-conflict countries and offers recommendations to help UN radio services make lasting contributions to free media. Broadcasting in UN Blue: The Unexamined Past and Uncertain Future of Peacekeeping Radio and a short summary of the report are available for download, along with previous CIMA reports and videos of CIMA discussions and events, at

Article: Covering Conflict: How the News Media Handles Ethnic Controversy

Keywords: International, English, media, conflict, ethnicity & race, religion & ethics, reporting. News gathering is a highly imperfect art, writes Ira Rifkin. Problems with basic facts, not to mention nuances, are common. But when you are talking about conflicts that are at their root racial, ethnic or religious, the stakes are higher. This is the stuff riots, wars and deep-seated prejudices are made of, and the news media has an even greater responsibility than it normally does to get it right.

Article: Cultural Diversity and Global Media, The Mediation of Difference, the book written by Eugenia Siapera

“Cultural Diversity and Global Media”, written by Eugenia Siapera, explores the relationship between  the media and multiculturalism.

The interesting book offers an specific perspective and also it does: -Summarises and critically discusses current approaches to multiculturalism and the media from a global perspective -Explores both the theoretical debates and empirical findings on multiculturalism and the media. -Explores media production, representation, and consumption, incorporating arguments on their shifting roles and boundaries -Examines separately the role of the internet, which is linked to many changes in patterns of media production, representation, and to increased possibilities for diasporic and transnational communication -Contains pedagogical features to help understanding and engagement with the material, and draws upon an extensive bibliography Eugenia Siapera is lecturer in Media and Communications at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. She is the editor (with Lincoln Dahlberg) of Radical Democracy and the Internet (2007) and (with Joss Hands) At the Interface (2004).
