    • A N OT H ER ALTERNATIVE? Throughout histor y, war has affected media, with conflict often creating an infor mation void. In the 21st centur y, media has begun to affect war more than ever before . Digital media technologies [...] have increased communication and infor mation dissemination in conflict settings [...]. These new tools can be used to foment violence or to foster peace , and it is possible to build communication systems that encour age dialogue and nonviolent political solutions. !
