assistance in these countries. Experts from around the globe will gather

- Challenges of fragile statehood for media and media assistance
- Measuring the impact of media and communication on conflict
- Ethical dilemmas for journalists and media development actors in
conflict societies
- The role of media in reconciliation and transitional justice
