The 12th World Radio Day will be held on February 13, 2023, with the theme “Radio and Peace.”
As the opposite of peace, war denotes a military struggle between nations or between groups inside a single nation, but it can also refer to a battle between competing media narratives.
The narrative can affect how peaceful or tense an election is going to be, whether returning refugees will be accepted or not, the level of patriotic fervor is going to be on the rise or going down, etc.
Radio stations create public opinion and frame a narrative that can have an impact on domestic and global conditions and decision-making processes through informing and reporting to the general public.
While professional radio does in fact moderate conflict and/or tensions, avoiding their escalation or facilitating negotiations for reconciliation and reconstruction, despite the fact that radio can fuel conflict.
Relevant programs and objective news coverage lay the groundwork for a sustainable democracy and good governance. In situations of distant or immediate tension by gathering information about what is happening.
Informing citizens about it in an unbiased and factual manner, laying out the issues involved, and facilitating communication between various social groups.
