Q. What are the requirements of collaborative governance for global peace?
Regarding communication among citizens and media, non-governmental organizations take their responsibilities in this type of role, but dialogues and discussions with government and related organizations are relatively low. Also, possibly due to the difference in influence and power, there is no clear space where people in different backgrounds can communicate.
Along with thinking of how to communicate beyond social strata, governments should pay more attention to the voice of citizens with a horizontal approach (rather than top-down). As members of society, citizens are responsible for communicating with governments on which policy making is based.
Through ideas and voices from citizens, governments and non-governmental organizations build responsibility and trust. The role of non-governmental organizations is to continue a long-term communication between citizens and governments. To do that, a mechanism of collaboration among these stakeholders is needed.
For global peace, government and peace-oriented organizations including HWPL should play a role in sharing information and knowledge related to peace affairs and figures who propose a better life with peaceful, just social conditions.
It is appropriate to discuss international issues, despite differences in national identities and social backgrounds.
Media should make a voice of collaborative governance in order for people from all walks of life to participate in promoting peace.

Media serve as a monitor to sustain and remind the function of good governance. To do this, media should contribute to sharing ideas of experts from different fields, produce such issues, and provide access to the information.
Media are an ideal vehicle for bringing out motivations to citizens in terms of severing political injustices that arouse international criticism and conforming to rule of laws.
Media are a mediator who can give hands. They can invite military and local leaders, women and youth to seek solutions to problems caused by hatred. This governance offers conflict resolution methods – ultimately peace.
To execute continuous press publications on peace-related contents, media can create a peaceful environment through peace building processes such as the DPCW designed to prevent violent conflicts.
About Voice of Press
HWPL’s Intercontinental Voice of Press is a dialogue platform for journalists to constantly contemplate the true freedoms and responsibilities of the media in order to achieve world peace, starting from last November in Europe, CIS and Asian continent countries. It reached the union press forum. It was the first time for journalists from the three continents to gather together to discuss peace, so the participants requested to hold on the continuous opening of the join media forum with embrace and appreciated the breakthrough and developmental efforts. This media forum is drawing attention to the future direction, supported by the expectations of journalists who agree that establishing the media network and building of a peace platform at the international level are guaranteed the freedom of the media internationally.
