the. to. now the new has just organized a conference looking into the role that media can play it brought together. media professionals and humanitarian experts to discuss access to information in forced migration situations. i'm now joined by jane would cross border networks project coordinator in uganda and josephine fortell and she coordinates

settlement the settlements is not as easy you don't just walk into a fugitive camp to gather some of the information but. that then becomes a limitation in terms of what some media houses or plates that able to broadcast yes right yes i mean let me bring you in here in here so you're using this platform c.b. and so bridges tensions between the more than a 1000000 south sudanese refugees in uganda and their host communities how is that working. because so much. this is really working because cross border neutral member registrations and cross-pollinate drug . veritas working towards you know creating a platform for for a few years and host communities we we do offer them an opportunity to have a dialogue between there for years and
a host i mean edition the last talk and share their challenge just. get solution that's normally what we do right. we also you know we've been tryna talk member registrations each member credit look at a time for for for discussion or for us issues and there and then the content is widely you know shared with all our audience and that's how we are we right now in doing it ok just a bit and perhaps tell us more about i know you're both going to weigh in here but starting with you josephine how does a cross border network kill rate its contents. possible in a talk is a network of member member registrations our contents normally come from the stations. but how we do it as cross about on a truck we always give capacity building through to our member stations journalists for them to come up with accounting that we need that should you know. the interest
of cross more than a truck so what we do is like we give capacity building we have a literal get lines we also you know have one you know reporting standard together with we don't need editors we we always come up with the content that we want and the condoms that we're looking after is a kind of contents that you know create space for peaceful coexistence peace conference and that gives you know the. refugees and the host communities a space of you know creating a. society right so that's how we normally do it yes right and jane there is an element of citizen journalism to this right as as as just in a sort of alluding to. yes there is an element of us citizen journalists and that is how we are able to get some content that is not easy to
find especially for other media outlets because we have citizen journalists who say who are some of whom leave within the camp so the segment on this one is that this citizen genet is that able to pick up on issues that are within the comps or the segments and they share with us. with on investigations and then the content goes through editorial and then that helps us to have content that can contribute to yep useful coexistence and also give some hope staying with e.j. and i just want it i mean what i what are you all proudest achievements with cross border and it i think i'm proudest achievement is that we have been able to create content to that has one way or the other contributed to peaceful coexistence among us there if it is and then the host communities. throughout our content we've
also seen that some steps have been taken by local government oh you know to that to the fact that even some you know things have been decided which have been helpful to to promote peace peace and peaceful coexistence we have examples of that as a result of content that we broadcast on our different radio stations member. member member districts you know different other districts where refugees. well in your late what excellent best practices were inserted in other districts that you know helps to scale down. conflicts but established more you know comfortable and yeah better working 77 meant better peaceful glycol satans just mean at the absolute end off with you i mean the deeds of the academy as organized as conference and looking at dialogue in forced migration what will be
