Journalism and the media may influence positive political and social change or fuel violence and conflict. Award-winning New York Times journalist and author, Thomas Friedman, will share his thoughts on interpreting large-scale trends, making sense of accelerating change, and providing reasons for hope in a complex and volatile world.

Free access to information is one of the most important pillars sustaining peace and human rights in our world. Media can promote peace by presenting issues fairly, offering alternative perspectives and sources of information, by countering hate media, and by purposefully pursuing peaceful resolution of conflict.

The event will be live streamed and archived online.
