Communication, Conflict and Peace Conference

Online International Conference organised by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies.

Global transformations fostered by the decentralisation of communications from mainstream media and governance institutions to a plural range of socioeconomic actors and stakeholders have shaken the foundations of social consensus, truth and objectivity in the construction of public spheres. Such transformation has posed unprecedented challenges to conflict management and peacebuilding, multiplying risks of instability and war, but also the spaces for the construction of collective meanings and the voices shaping them.
