What role can documentaries play in a post-war environment? How can they help people come to terms with their country's violent past? This was the focus of a one-week DW Akademie workshop held in Bogotá.
DW Akademie recently invited the winner of the 2014 ¡Investiga! journalism award, David González, to Berlin for a workshop on resolving the past. Here he talks about conflict and peace and role that journalism can play.
How does a country - and its people - come to terms with the atrocities committed during a decades-long, bloody civil war? Dialogue is the key, and that’s a focus of DW Akademie projects in Guatemala.
For the third year in a row DW Akademie and the Universidad del Norte presented the journalism prize ¡Investiga! The awards went to outstanding reports focused on coming to terms with Colombia's conflict.
