Journalism students and journalists participating in the Academy on Dealing with the Past (DwP) Journalism and Conflict Sensitive Reporting, during the third module, learned about the role of journalists and the media in addressing historical issues, with a specific focus on the reality in Kosovo.

This module of the Academy was taught by Besian Beha – a journalist, who engaged participants in a discussion on the crucial role of journalists and media organizations in influencing collective memory and public discourse on historical conflicts, particularly focusing on Kosovo. Participants of the Academy also looked at real examples that show the challenges and responsibilities when reporting on events connected to ethnic conflicts and the process of reconciliation.

Among other things, Beha shared with the journalists his experience of monitoring and reporting numerous court cases related to conflict-sensitive reporting.

During this module journalists and journalism students had the chance to see how media narratives can bridge divides or deepen them. Through interactive discussions, participants had the opportunity to see methods for ethical journalism, and strategies to promote dialogue and peace in post-conflict societies.
