"I believe in Peace Journalism*.
I believe that the media can play a major role in peace building. Through highlighting the positive, life changing achievements of everyday people. Through demanding for collective action and constructive social change.
Through transparency and preserving people's dignities.
The media can change our reality."
Serene Dardari, Chams Network Founder

*Peace Journalism is defined “when editors and reporters make choices - of what to report, and how to report it - that create opportunities for society at large to consider and value non-violent responses to conflict” (Lynch and McGoldrick, 2005)
