Webinar – How Ensuring Public Access to Information Can Help Build Peaceful and Inclusive Societies


Univ. of Sydney Department of Peace and Conflict Studies – TRANSCEND Media Service

6 October, 2016 – 18:00-19:30 ~ More Than Free Information Flow

Sustainable Development Goal 16 identifies the building of peaceful and inclusive societies as essential to delivering the development agenda, and one of its goals – the tenth – specifies “ensuring public access to information” as a co-requisite of peace and, therefore, development. Key indicators include measures to ensure the free flow of information, but – in the UN context – this cannot be an end in itself.

To deliver on its promise, SDG 16:10 will need to be implemented with additional concepts and principles, specific to the overarching purpose of enhancing prospects for international peace and security. In this webinar, Jake Lynch traces the debate over information and communication and their place in development and peace, with reference to interventions along a spectrum from journalist training, on the one end, to intended-outcome programming on the other.
