This study investigates the conflict in Balochistan through the war and peace journalism. Using content analysis as a data collection technique, the researcher collected all the conflict related news stories in the daily Dawn from January 2013 till the end of December 2017. The investigation found that the daily Dawn primarily applied war journalism approach in its coverage of Balochistan conflict. In terms of topics, war journalism was more prominent in violent events as compared to peace events. In terms of intensity of war and peace events, more active war journalism was applied by the newspaper while some passive peace journalism frames were also present. The findings of the study support the literature on war-media nexus that media usually do conflict escalatory reporting due to structural and agential pressures.
