Center for Media Studies and Peace Building

About the organisation

The Center for Media Studies and Peacebuilding (CEMESP) is one of Liberia’s leading media development organizations. The Center was legally established on October 24, 2003 in response to the challenges confronting professional media practice and free speech as a result of years of conflict in Liberia.

Description of the organisation

The organisation’s objectives at inception were to strengthen the work of media professionals and human rights organizations and thereby enhance peace building efforts through the development of the capacities of these two key sectors to understand, anticipate and forecast conflicts as well as develop and plan holistic solutions to such conflicts.
Center for Media Studies and Peacebuilding, (CEMESP) was primarily formed to protect media rights and freedom of expression using a multi stakeholders approach. The attrition of war in human and material terms necessitated a post war media action to help in building state and non-actors synergy in charting a new direction based on democratic renewal that consolidates peace.
