Book Description

This book maps the field of peace and conflict reporting in a digital world where the financial prospects of the news industry are challenged, and professional authority, credibility and autonomy are decaying. Bringing together theory and practice, Peace and Conflict Reporting explores the possibilities and challenges involved in contemporary reporting of peace and conflict. This collection examines changes in the working practices of journalists as ongoing, strategic assaults against them – varying from online harassment to physical attacks – have reduced the number of media correspondents either willing or able to operate in war zones, and how this has left others – such as activists, freedom fighters and governments – to fill the information void. Contributors discuss a diverse range of key case studies including the role of Bellingcat in conflict journalism, war and peace journalism in Afghanistan, visual storytelling in conflict zones, and election coverage in Bangladesh. This book is ideal for students and academics in the fields of global journalism, foreign news reporting, conflict reporting, globalization, media, and international communication.
