Abstract

In modern journalism conflict resolution has become one of the significant issues. This paper evaluates the print media coverage of Rohingya crisis, which is one of the world’s most discussed topics in recent years. This study is based on the notion that media has potential to impact conflict prevention and its resolution. Based on their circulation, this study selected four Bangladeshi national daily newspapers. The aim is to examine Rohingya conflict-related news and editorials. The primary results confirmed that the issue’s coverage is negatively presented and consistently concentrated on abuse, violent incidents and the lack of peaceful solutions. It concludes that Bangladeshi print media did not play any crucial role in the peaceful resolution of the Rohingya crisis.
