The Media Association for Peace, or MAP, based in Lebanon, advances the work of journalists in promoting peace journalism with an emphasis on the Middle East and North Africa regions. MAP’s vision is to “get to media that play an essential role in peacebuilding especially in conflict and post-conflict areas while enhancing Human Rights, Dialogue, Reconciliation, Citizenship, Gender Equality, Environmental Awareness, Sustainable Development and Social Justice in order to reach a less violent, more peaceful world.”

A recent initiative of MAP has been to interview Syrian refugees and document their plight.  You can learn more about MAP by clicking below
