South Africa to co-host the 2016 United Nations International Media Seminar on Peace in the Middle East

The South African Government in partnership with the United Nations Department of Public Information and with the support of the Embassy of Sweden in Pretoria, will co-host the United Nations International Media Seminar on Peace in the Middle East. The purpose of the seminar is to sensitise public opinion, prevailing media coverage on the peace processes and to enhance dialogue between the Israelis and Palestinians.

The discussions will focus on a variety of issues, including the prospects for a political solution of the Israel-Palestine conflict; the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the occupied Palestinian territory; the Israel-Palestine story expressed through documentaries and films; political satire as a peacemaker; virtual reality as the next frontier in storytelling; and the power of animation to communicate complex issues about the situation.

Members of the media are invited as follows:

Date: Wednesday, 31 August 2016 – 2 September 2016

Venue: Conference room 2, O R Tambo Building, 460 Soutpansberg Road, Pretoria
