Download Qualität in der Krisen- und Kriegsberichterstattung: Ein by Nadine Bilke PDF

By Nadine Bilke

Wie berichten Journalistinnen und Journalisten über Konflikte? Und wie sollten sie über Konflikte berichten? Diese Fragen haben mich nun über Jahre besch- tigt: in meiner Diplomarbeit, in Seminaren, Konferenzen, Workshops und in der redaktionellen Praxis – mal als Studentin, mal als Dozentin, mal als Journalistin. Mit dieser Arbeit lege ich das Ergebnis dieser Auseinandersetzungen vor: ein Modell für einen konfliktsensitiven Journalismus, das Erkenntnisse aus der Jo- nalistik und aus der Konflikttheorie zusammenführt, um Qualität in der Kris- und Kriegsberichterstattung zu beschreiben. Mein Dank gilt den Menschen, die meine Arbeit an diesem Thema begleitet haben. Prof. Dr. Claus Eurich hat mich in den Jahren des Schreibens stets unt- stützt und mein Denken mit wertvollen Anstößen inspiriert. Prof. Dr. Hajo Schmidt stand mir ebenso immer zur Seite; er conflict eine unverzichtbare Quelle für das Fachgebiet der Friedenswissenschaft. Danken möchte ich den Seminarteilnehmern und Kolleginnen, die mir als Mediennutzerinnen oder Medienmacher immer neue Facetten des Themas erö- web haben. Die Diskussionen haben diese Arbeit entscheidend vorangebracht. Dr. Sonja Kretzschmar hat mich immer wieder ermutigt und wichtige Wegweiser gesetzt. Dr. Carsten Brosda und Prof. Dr. Christoph Neuberger haben wesentliche fachliche Hinweise beigesteuert. Tonia Siebers, Pia Nitz und Ulrich Hansen haben die Arbeit mit Geduld und Sachverstand redigiert. Annika Ke- ting hat der friedensjournalistischen Pyramide eine Gestalt gegeben.
