Search for Common Ground (Search) is an international conflict transformation NGO that aims to transform the way individuals, groups, governments and companies deal with conflict – away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative solutions. Since 2009, Search Sudan designs and implements multifaceted, culturally appropriate and conflict-sensitive programs using a diverse range of tools, including media and training, to promote dialogue, increase knowledge and determine a positive shift in behaviors. Search relies on the media sector in all its projects; this is because the Sudanese media sector has great potential to advance peace, security and state building in Sudan by providing reliable, balanced and timely information to the population, and by informing and educating the Sudanese population about the broader political process occurring in the country. Therefore, it is important to produce accurate, engaging and conflict-sensitive radio programming tailored to each state’s local residents.
