Mediothek Afghanistan has been proving capacity-building programs for journalists and reporters across the country through its media houses located in different provinces, so far Mediothek has trained, on different capacity levels, more than 2300 journalists via different workshops and capacity-building programs in the capital and provinces.
Additionally, Mediothek has been consistently working on the provision of journalistic and educational and training materials, and as a continuation of these efforts, Mediothek recently translated and published a manual on the “Peace Jornalism”, the manual is a handy help and reference for journalists and educators.
The main objective of this book is to provide journalists with an in-depth understanding of peace journalism and conflict sensitive journalism, this genre of journalism is not well understood. Most of journalists practice traditional journalism, which lacks the conflict sensitive attributes.
Peace journalism prepares journalists and reporters to report from violent conflicts in a constructive manner, and chose care wording and cover the conflict from various angles, because, wrong and reckless wording can exacerbate the conflict and stir violence.  
Like journalism in its all forms, conflict sensitive journalism particularly stresses on impartiality, objectivity and neutrality.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Mr. Massoud Momin who meticulously selected, complied and translated the materials and resources and Sayed Saderudin Sader for editing the book.
We would also like to wholeheartedly thank Mr. Abdullah Rasully for proofreading and final correction and Mr. Dawoud Wafa from carefully translating the book into Pashto.   
At the end, we would like to sincerely express our appreciation and gratitude from the Civil Peace Service Program (ZFD) of GIZ from graciously support financially supporting the initiative. It is wise to note that ZFD supported us with previous publication as well.
