Dans le National Posta, Tomer Avital décrit son projet ainsi :
« Networking the gap is a series of workshops for journalists from conflict areas who cover non-war topics such as culture and education. … Reporters will establish contacts which they will then draw upon when writing human-interest articles, thereby transforming the foreigner into a more rounded character – a neighbor. The program stems from the idea that journalists on either side of any conflict have the power to communicate on a mass scale, and a dialogue between them would help enhance durable peace.leaders» Tomer Avital: Ignorance about the Middle East, even among bright Canadians
