Résumé : On 28 and 29 September 2016, five researchers from the INFOCORE team, representing almost all work packages of the project gathered with around 50 journalists, academics, policy makers and civil society representatives from the DRC and Burundi. This third INFOCORE dissemination stakeholder workshop took place in the town of Gisenyi (in Rwanda) and aimed at discussing the first provisional findings from the different work packages.The programme was built around presentations made by INFOCORE research team members, followed by a thematic round-table including two Burundian and two Congolese resource persons for each topic, then a debate with the audience.This report gives an overview of the presentations by the INFOCORE research team, the questions raised by the participants, and the most important issues, problems and challenges that were identified during the discussions. The workshop provided a unique opportunity for different actors playing an important role in conflict prevention, response and resolution in the African Great Lakes region to meet and share ideas. It allowed for Congolese and Burundian stakeholders to share their concerns related to the role of media in violent conflict, taking into account the specificities and similarities of the national contexts.
