In 2011 and 2012, USIP held a Priority Grant Competition entitled “Communication for Peacebuilding” to support research and practitioner projects on the ways that communication flows and communication technologies can contribute to the prevention and resolution of conflict. Internews, a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening independent media worldwide, received funding in 2011 for a grant project in the Central African Republic and also agreed to serve as the lead ‘learning organization’ for the group of three 2011 grantees.
How Strengthening the Media Can Boost Development in Sub-Saharan Africa
In the coming decade, most of the fastest growing economies will be African, but the region’s progress in improving governance, poverty reduction, and human development lags far behind its economic growth. Governments and donors have largely overlooked the potential of a healthy media sector to boost Africa’s development.
To support the peace building and stabilization process in the Great Lakes Region, Internews Europe has produced a series of documentary films and news reports under its current Media for Reconciliation program.
(December 1, 2011) Results of the presidential election in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are expected Monday, the sixth of December, and the country waits with bated breath. Many fear street protests and armed clashes may greet whatever result is announced. The November 28th elections, only the second in forty years, have been logistically flawed, with numerous cases of alleged fraud and polling center violence. At least eight people were reported killed in the violence.
(February 14, 2011) In a country beset by internal strife, conflict and underdevelopment, the media in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) face challenges of their own: restrictive media laws, intimidation of journalists and the fragile infrastructure of fledgling independent and community radio stations.
Against this backdrop, Internews has just begun implementing a 5-year project to support the growth and sustainability of dozens of community radio stations across four provinces in this vast country.
The 5th Annual Rwanda Film Festival (June 12-28) screened four documentary films made by Internews as part of a peace-building project that has reached thousands of people in Rwanda and the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Under the project, Internews Europe worked with local journalists to produce 12 documentaries, filmed in both countries, that tell stories of everyday life - music, sport, village events - to familiarize communities on both sides of the conflict-affected border with each other and show how they can live together in peace.
