Reporting the Frontier:
This small handbook is written for a variety of readers. Its prime audience is journalists in Fata (Federally Administered Tribal Areas). This is an ethnically Pukhtoon region bordering Afghanistan, the second longest border of Pakistan. The book consists of two parts. The first one defines journalism in Fata, Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa (KPK), and Pakistan within the larger national context. The second part gives a case study of how capacity building for peace and conflict management could be made successful through a training program. This program was organized in collaborated efforts between the Department of Journalism & Mass Communication, University of Peshawar, and the United States Institute of Peace. USIP has not simply helped in financing the project, there is also a lot of input in conceptual development and project writing by the colleagues from USIP. The book strives to cater to the need of different audiences and that is why it might seem to have something for every one of them, but not all for any. Simply writing a narrative of the capacity building program didn't seem to be a reasonable choice.
