From Steve Youngblood’s Peace Journalism website:
Peace Journalism is when editors and reporters make choices that improve the prospects for peace. These choices also promote the positive development of societies recovering from war. These choices — which stories to report and how they are reported, among others — create an atmosphere conducive to peace and supportive of peace initiatives and peacemakers, without compromising the principles of good journalism.
What Andi Did in Uganda
During the few weeks she spent in country, Andi taught lessons on ethical journalism to Ugandan radio reporters at two seminars facilitated by Fulbright scholar Professor Steve Youngblood. She also did field reporting on landmine survivors and the drought in northwestern Uganda, a video news package over the trip, and a comprehensive blog over her experiences.
