[This post was updated to include photos from the "Moving Forward: Re-Imagining Conflict as a Force for Change" panel at the War Stories Peace Stories symposium on April 11, 2018.]

On April 11, 2018, a one-day symposium will be held covering peace, conflict, and the media at the Times Center in New York City. The day will be filled with panels and discussion surrouding how conflict and peace are reported. 

The stories that are told about conflict shape perception and public policy. This raises important questions: What is the most responsible way to report on conflict? Can a story focusing on peace be equally interesting? This symposium will explore these questions and go deeper to look at media's relationship with conflict and peace. 

Speakers and panelists who will share new ideas about covering war and peace include Pulitzer Center grantees: Lynsey Addario, photojournalist; Heba Aly, IRIN; Yochi Dreazen, Vox; Vanessa Gezari, Intercept; Alexis Okeowo, The New Yorker; Tina Rosenberg, Solutions Journalism; and Reza Sayeh, PBS. Also participating are Christina Asquith, The Fuller Project; Daniel Beaulieu, News Deeply; Helene Cooper, New York Times; Melanie Greenberg, Alliance for Peacebuilding; Sebastian Junger, Reporter, Filmmaker; Mort Rosenblum, Reporter, Professor; Robert J. Rosenthal, Center for Investigative Reporting; and Jon Sawyer and Kem Sawyer from the Pulitzer Center.
