Photojournalism and conflict transformation

ONE of the highlights of Just Festival has been the 'In Sight of Peace' exhibition showing in St John's hall which bears moving witness to South Africa’s extraordinary journey from segregation and inequality towards justice, peace and reconciliation.

But what of the wider role of photojournalism in political and social contexts, and in the quest for peacemaking? Following the conversation with doyen photographer Ian Berry at 12.30-1.30pm, there will be a panel discussion (2-3pm) to dig deeper into the part photojournalism can play in processes of conflict transformation.

The panel consists of Professor Jolyon Mitchell (University of Edinburgh, centre for Theology and Public Issues), Professor Scott Appleby (Kroc Institute of International Peacebuilding, Notre Dame University, USA), Ian Berry (Magnum Photos) and chair Dr Theodora Hawksley (University of Edinburgh).
