Abstract: Informing the mass is one of the fundamental roles of the media universally. This role becomes vital during conflicts and wars because their interventions are either in de-escalating or in escalating the violence and situation in the volatile areas. Many scholars agree conflict is inevitable and now becoming parts of life. The problem will be when the conflicts do not go on to the predetermined directions. In changing the conflict either of the direction (good or bad result), media play their own role. Peace-oriented scholars described that the responsible journalists in media institutions are aspiring to play the positive role in transforming conflicts to resolution. However, these journalists are facing internal and external challenges. This essay is, therefore, attempts to discuss the media intervention in conflict situations and their challenges in peacebuilding and peace promotion. By exploring the challenges of the media in conflict reporting, there can be large possibilities to use the media to the maximum advantage. While the role of the media in various aspects (including war and conflicts) has been the subject of the discussion on a numbers events and papers, scant attentions have been given not only for the role of the media in conflict transformation peace promotion, but also in identifying their challenges in the attempts of intervening in peace building.
