Training Programme for Journalists on the Culture of Peace in Order to Strengthen Participative Democracy

Year when project approved: 

The general objective of this project is to improve the functioning of the media in Peru as news providers, thus strengthening support for press freedom and freedom of expression. It also intends to provide more access to information and promote civic participation in public affairs, democratic processes and the culture of peace. To acheive this, it proposes to provide local journalists (from radio, newspapers and TV) with a training programme that incorporates conceptual ideas and skills to enable them to work for peace and democracy. This involves: Generating a flow of favourable opinions around the process of democracy in the media; Establishing ways of relating and dialoguing between the State and the civil society; Formulating criteria for conflict resolution and creating a culture of consensus between all the actors within the State; Promoting ways of enabling citizen participation and consensus; Promoting a culture of peace on the bases of solidarity and dialogue and whereby all actors undertake a social responsibility; and promoting the formation of new local leaders who are involved in the construction of a culture of peace based on democracy in the country. The immediate objectives of the project are (i) to provide education and training for 250 journalists from several parts of the country; (ii) to enable 100 journalists, men and women, to participate in a programme of education and training on participative democracy and culture of peace; (iii) to provide supervision and educational materials through e-mail to 150 journalists, enabling them to include issues related to building participative democracy and a culture of peace in their specific productions.
