The Center for Global Peace Journalism works with journalists, academics, and students worldwide to improve reporting about conflicts, social unrest, reconciliation, solutions, and peace. Through its courses, workshops, lectures, magazine (The Peace Journalist), blog, and other resources, the Center encourages media to reject sensational and inflammatory reporting, and produce counter-narratives that offer a more nuanced view of those who are marginalized—ethnic/racial/religious minorities, women, youth, and migrants.
In 2018, the center sponsored projects in Ethiopia, Cameroon, Kansas City, and elsewhere, and published two editions of the Peace Journalist magazine. For more information, see www.park.edu/peacecenter.
