Media and Democratisation in Africa

The two very different countries Ethiopia and Senegal at least share two commonalities: at present they are out of the lime light of global awareness. They also offer interesting examples of how citizen journalism is beginning to develop and is used for social and political communication in African countries.

The session will address the frameworks under which media are being used, what technologies play a role and how synergies can be created between media and activists. Jörn Schultz (GIZ) and Adam Thomas (Sourcefabric) will report from projects they are currently working for in Ethiopia and Senegal and share examples how both traditional and new media are being used for political communication and citizen journalism.
