about mict
MiCT – Media in Cooperation and Transition is a German non-profit organisation that implements media development projects in crisis regions. Activities focus on the interplay between conflict, media coverage and reconciliation.

MiCT’s services comprise the training of journalists and media producers, programme and content development, radio and film production, magazine and book publishing, as well as media research and monitoring in conflict regions. At the headquarters in Berlin, an international team of more than 20 full-time staff members coordinates MiCT’s activities in 15 different countries. All projects are implemented in close cooperation with our partners on-site.

Through its activities, MiCT aims to foster the transformation of conflict towards reconciliation, and encourage dialogue among conflicting factions within society. The focal point is the interaction and interdependence of media and conflict. Supporting media cooperation, media networking and media development, as well as capacity building in the field of journalism is recognised as the key factor in conflict transition.

MiCT has been financed and supported by the Belgian Foreign Office, the Canadian Government, DFID, the DOEN Foundation, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Federal Foreign Office, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), UNAMI, UNDP, UNESCO, and UNIFEM.
