Reporting peace instead of war?

This event will focus on the important role of media in peace processes. Is there a link between reporting and peace? Is it just an ideal of people and reporters in war torn countries? Or does it play an active role in the activism of new agencies? Together with 12 journalists from all over the world visiting The Hague, Jan Roelfs and Kara Blackmore will join us for yet another interesting dialogue.

Kara Blackmore is a British/American writer and antropologist who works at the intersection of art, heritage and social justice. She will talk about framing, images and war vs. peace reporting. She will let us imagine the unimaginable, show us the dynamics of peacetime and provide visual material for alternative ways of seeing conflict affected societies.

Jan Roelfs, reporter of NOS television, went to Zataari refugee camp in Jordan to explore the role of football in the Syria peace processes. He will talk about positive messaging and the concept of hope in reporting. Jan is one of the most popular Dutch sports commentator at NOS television. He vividly commends on UEFA Champions League, Premier league, Eredivisie, football matches, international tennis competitions and cross-country races as well as the Olympic summer and winter games.

Hicham Oulmoudanne, journalist from Casablanca Morocco visiting The Hague on a journalist program of the Hague project Peace and Justice, lived in Belgium for several years, did the negative framing affect him? What is his perspective on radicalisation and stereotyping in Europe?
