Round Table Under the Framework of Peace Week


On September 22nd, Human Rights House Tbilisi held a round table in Tbilisi office of IWPR (Institute for War & Peace Reporting) under the framework of peace week. After showing the documentary film of studio Re Verdict of the August War the discussion on the theme of Media and Conflict was held. IWPR was one of the organizers of the round table.

“The discussion was held under the framework of peace week organized by Human Rights House. The discussion topic was interesting and significant for the journalists working on the topics of war and conflict. These kinds of discussions promote the development of local media,” – stated Shorena Latatia, representative of Human Rights House.

The main speakers of the discussion were: the head of Studio Re, a documentary filmmaker Mamuka Kuparadze, the regional director of Institute of War and Peace Reporting Beka Bajelidze and journalist Tea Topuria.

New documentary of Studio Re Verdict of August War consists of the interviews of the government representatives, experts, journalists and ordinary citizens who represented Georgian, Ossetian and Abkhazian sides.

“The goal of the film was to re-evaluate the events of 2008. I dedicated this film to the young people. Young people are the ones who should be involved in the conflict resolution. New perspectives and ideas are necessary,” – noted the director of the film Mamuka Kuparadze.

According to regional director of IWPR Beka Bajelidze this discussion was very necessary and essential as the journalists who work on the issues of conflict need to be informed regarding the news in this sphere.

Journalist Tea Topuria attended the training Peace Journalism in Northern Cyprus with Abkhaz and Ossetian journalists. “These kinds of training help to deepen our relationship,” – noted Tea Topuria.

The journalists shared their knowledge and experience regarding this sphere.
