This article discusses, through a literature study,  the rare and exceptional circumstances in which the mass media can function as peace- bringers. Two important circumstances are the law of universal violence and an unequal and unbalanced access to the media. This article can contribute to my thesis, because it gives a few, great explanations about when peace journalism, or peace promotion through mass media, will succeed. It also concludes a well- organized model of peace research and mass media research, what perhaps will come in handy in my thesis.
