LEAD Training for Media - December 2021


Journalists, independent media, and media house owners attended the Leadership and Conflict Management Skills for Electoral Stakeholders training held by the European Centre for Electoral Support. The training took place on December 2-3, 2021, in Addis Ababa.

This action was carried out as part of the European Union-funded project Preventing, Mitigating, and Managing Electoral Conflict and Potential Violence in Ethiopia. By assisting NSAs in addressing fundamental causes of political and election-related violence and conflict, the PEV-Ethiopia Project aims to prevent, mitigate, and manage conflicts that may develop during the electoral cycle.

Apart from covering different leadership fundamentals and conflict resolution mechanisms; participants also examined and obtained a greater understanding of the impact of social media on Ethiopian elections, as well as hate speech, fake news, and misinformation during the election process.
