Wars and conflicts have been the bane of human experience from the very beginning of existence. In the 20th Century alone, there were seven major genocidal conflicts that claimed approximately 17.8 million lives. The fear is whether humanity will allow the tragedy of genocide to continue into the future. If not, how does it stop, and in what ways could the media play a more responsible role in their coverage of these conflicts as the watchdog of the global society? The book - The Media and the Rwandan Genocide: Towards a More Responsible Conflict Coverage - takes a retrospective look at the evils of genocide using Rwanda in particular as a contextual platform. It evaluates media involvement in that genocide, examines media social responsibility and proposes more engaging educational and practical strategies that would help the media perform their function more responsibly. This book would serve as a veritable academic and professional resource for media schools - teachers and students alike, and for media practitioners, especially those who intend to work in the area of conflict coverage.
