Public Debates – 2013

MAP held its first Public discussion on Peace Journalism at AltCity, in Hamra, Beirut to introduce the concept of Peace Journalism to the Lebanese society.

Youth from different backgrounds have taken part in the event and shared interesting perspectives and visions about media.

Abla Hariri, one of the attendees shared her feedback:

“It’s great to know that we have such an attempt to improve journalism processes in Lebanon, seeking a wiser Lebanese audience able to take a clear stand of the situation based on consistent and reliably reported information. I got to learn that each individual in the society is a journalist in one way or another, responsible for reporting events in a proper manner, which entails learning the steps to become a ‘peace journalist.’ Thank you MAP!”
