Survivors: Fixing the Middle East Through Reality TV, Adventure Travel
In Iraq, the second season of a special television show is about to begin. Salam Shabab – “Peace Youth” in Arabic – brings together teenagers between 14 and 18 from different regions of the country for a reality television show. Based on a curriculum co-designed by the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) and Iraqi educators, Salam Shabab is part education, part entertainment. Theo Dolan is the Senior Program Officer at USIP Center for Media, Conflict and Peace building at USIP.
