Conflict appeals to the media because of its news values’ attributes. But while there is a wealth of literature on representation and mediation of conflicts from the perspectives of mainstream media, there is a paucity of research from the perspectives of diasporic media. Therefore, the various chapters in this anthology provide systematically, analytically and empirically grounded approaches to understanding the representation and mediation of conflicts by the diasporic media and their consequences for conflict resolution. By so doing, this anthology aims to provoke debates and further research into the roles of diasporic media in escalating and deescalating conflict at Home, the challenges they pose to their professional values, and to their engagement with diaspora audiences.
