War Stories. Peace Stories.

Peace, Conflict & The Media. A Symposium

Wherever there is war, there is reporting. We want the dramatic story—but at what cost? Does covering violence beget more violence? Let’s discuss in the Symposium.

There are other stories just outside our field of view—stories of extraordinary resilience, of local or quiet heroes, of communities pushing back effectively in nonviolent ways. Can peace be a good story?

The stories we sell and tell have extraordinary power to shape policy and perception. Stories can change hearts and minds. We’ve seen it happen—stories can end wars, bring about peace and save lives. A good story can change the world.

Let’s discuss.
