Conflict Sensitive Reporting – In Cypress

Our colleague, Carol Daniel Kasbari hosted a gathering among Cypriot journalists on October 26 & 27, 2007 in Cypress sponsored by the U.S. Embassy’s Bi-communal Support Program. The conference design was in part inspired by Journalism that Matters, using our signature conversational process, Open Space Technology. It was entitled:

Cyprus 2008: What is and might be the role of journalists?

The Symposium brought together journalists from both sides of the “Green Line” as well as from Greece and Turkey for an in-depth discussion on questions such as: objectivity when covering conflict; representation of the Cyprus issue in the media;the importance of maintaining meaningful collaborations among journalists working in the region. A report of the meeting is here: journalists-training-booklet-cyprus.
