How we tell stories of conflict

Comments given for an article written by Elie Gardner for the Medium...Peace and security analyst Christina Bache says images and stories about conflict are more likely to portray military force, violence, and combat. According to Bache, the images that do portray more peaceful scenes often show “negative peace,” or the absence of violence, such as the signing of a ceasefire, rather than daily life in the streets......Bache, the peace and security analyst, believes lasting peace is built by these quieter characters: the doctors in the Mosul field hospital, women, children, and small community groups contributing to economic development. She asks herself, can too much depiction of the front line reinforce a militaristic approach as the only road to peace?
