Some of our activities we’ve put on display down below.
On others, like Narrative Management for Peace through Dialogue, we’ve elaborated for you a bit further.
Narrative Management for Peace through Dialogue
Brief preview – Our current mission is to counter extremists strategies to use social media and elaborate communication to destabilize countries and regions. So-called narratives are disseminated in which disinformation, hatred and propaganda are combined to create narratives that appeal to existing fears, prejudices and needs of the local population. As a result, trust in institutions and fellow citizens is damaged and conflicts between population groups are fueled.
We intend to expand the project beyond the two current project regions of Northern Ghana and The Gambia and to involve further countries and relevant actors. “Narrative Management for Peace through Dialogue” is a project by the University of Berlin in partnership with Project Lighthouse Africa e.V.. Supported by the likes of Hanns Seidel Foundation, Free State of Bavaria, the BMZ as well as Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS).
