The media in a (post-) conflict situation may be seen as a double-edged sword. It can propagate messages of intolerance or disinformation that manipulate public sentiment, but also have the potential to play an important part in reconciliation and healing of traumas, and may lay the ground for a culture where opposition and government talk to each other. The research project look into practices of journalism and their contribution to how conflicts are perceived, how dynamics are changed and the chances for constructive turns of conflict.
