In addition to informing people, media can shape and spread values, defuse tensions, and counter hate-speech. By investigating pressing issues, exposing malfeasance, and distributing an array of opinions, media can help people question established ideas and reflect on pressing issues. However, the way information is distributed may cause conflicts to escalate, or be manipulated by those in power. Join us as we discuss how journalism and mass media impact societies; as they a key role in positive social and political transformations, but also fuel stigmas and stereotypes, contributing to violence and conflict.
