In Liberia, Talking Drum Studio, has people from different ethnic groups working on a broad spectrum of programming, that ranges from news and humanitarian information to a radio soap opera, on the problems and dilemmas faced by a Liberian refugee family.
The Common Ground approach is used to identify and tackle local disputes and conflicts in the form of talk shows, in which people representing different sides of an issue are brought together to explore the common understanding between them.
Topics have included conflicts between local NGOs, ethnic groups and political rivals.
The objective of such programmes is to show that even contentious issues can be examined in ways that inform and entertain and at the same time promote the search for solutions.
