Peace Journalism is a type of journalism, “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&McGoldrick 2005).
The Peace Journalism Model originally evolved from the idea of Johan Galtung in 1964, who through discussing The Structure of Foreign News outlined some policy implications for journalists and for academic research in twelve points.
