Peace Journalism Studies 
- Submission Guideline -

Peace Journalism Studies is a periodical with international journalists’ writings including opinions, columns, researches, articles, issue papers, speeches, etc. Focusing on the issues of global peace and journalism, Peace Journalism Studies provides a forum for the study and discussion of peace and journalism in order to give insights on peace-building efforts, review conflict cases and management, offer media perspectives, initiatives, education, programs in various parts of the world. This periodical reflects the desire for the intellectual interests of journalists and practitioners in the field of peace-building.

In addition to the demands from global journalists for professional discussion and education, Peace Journalism Studies seeks to establish a network of peace by related parties in the field of peace and journalism. This is a part of the recommendations agreed and offered by participant journalists in “Voice of Peace: Media Perspective on COVID-19 and Social Change” on February 13th, 2021. The recommendations are as following.

1. In a lack of information and misinformation brought by the pandemic, rebuilding communication channel to better access to shared data and research to overcome social (physical) distancing is required.
2. Acknowledging that producing misinformation from media agencies is witnessed, the media shall pay special attention to their role of generating news after performing fact-checks.
3. Reminding that misinformed beliefs can cause detrimental effects on families, communities, and countries, the media is responsible for formulating the idea that every individual can contribute to the public interests by acquiring knowledge and applying the necessary skills distinguished from misinformation.
4. Confirming that the media are the best channel of communication in the international community for sharing the data needed for citizens, journalists shall engage in building cooperative partnership to effectively fight against the COVID-19 and the related social harm stemming from it.
5. International journalists shall seek collaboration with global actors including governments, international organizations, civil society, and local and national media agencies to develop capacity building and policy-making aimed at training journalists and producing news contents aimed at boosting ideas of international cooperation for peace.

6. Professionalism to target reliability of media with handling sources of information needs to be sought, which will also lead to clarifying better pictures of situations by understanding the context and avoiding the discrepancy between news reports and the reality.
7. Understanding that environmental degradation can be facilitated by human activities and have a negative impact on lives of people, the media shall deliver information to raise awareness of the environmental situations without manipulation so that action plans to maintain sustainable development with environmental protection can be pursued.
8. Understanding that the pandemic created both disease and non-disease damages, international journalists are encouraged to continue to pay their attention to the need for international assistance for joint progress, especially for those areas that suffer from the loss of basic needs such as relief, health service, and public education.
9. Being aware that the democratic system secured by election, rule of law, democratic institutions, human rights agencies, peaceful change of government, and other means, international journalists are encouraged to advocate democratic values shared by the international community through covering the related news.
10. Recalling the purposes and principles of the international documents signed by states to secure global peace and human security, international journalists are encouraged to provide necessary information about international law for peace and elevate the level of cases relating to peace at an international level so that global citizens can appeal to the international community to pursue their freedom and rights.

All submitted writings will undergo review by Department of Public Relations of HWPL HQ. Editors will ask some revisions to increase the quality of the submissions. The finalized version will be posted online including the HWPL website and introduced in HWPL events.
