Societies worldwide are increasingly being influenced by new forms of media and communication that intersect with all areas of life and manifest itself in a “growing importance of media power” (Livingstone, 2009). In conflict and post-conflict environment the recognition of media power has become visible in peace media and media empowerment projects that are carried out by humanitarian and development actors. The Media Power for Peacebuilding workshop will address questions of media power from theoretical and practical points of views, including examples drawn from case studies in conflict/post-conflict environments such as Colombia, Lebanon, and DRC.
