INFOCORE - (In)forming conflict prevention: The role of media in violent conflict

The Brussels Final Dissemination Conference, November 17, 2016, Belgium.

The Brussels Final Dissemination Conference was held on 17 November 2016 to a diverse audience composed of stakeholders and representatives from NGOs policy-makers, journalists and media, academics and students. The INFOCORE researchers presented the final results and policy recommendations from their respective work packages which ultimately seek to gain a deeper understanding of news creation in conflict areas; more specifically in Israel and Palestine, in Syria, in Kosovo, in F.Y.R.O. Macedonia, in Burundi and in the DRC. Major topics which were also addressed include the role of NGOs in conflict news reporting, the role of new media in conflict-related news, how the general public views the media in war zones, the impact of gender on conflict news and its coverage, and specific policy implications of the INFOCORE research.
