CALL FOR PAPERS
AFRICA MEDIA & DEMOCRACY CONFERENCE 2011- ACCRA, GHANA
The Africa Media & Democracy Institute invites papers for its annual Media and Democracy Conference, (AMDMC) to be held from 17th-19th August 2011, Accra-Ghana. Theme: Media & Democracy towards sustainable stability.
The AMDMC Conference is organised annually and takes place in a selected African country; presentations at the conference are made by distinguished scholars and individuals from Africa and the rest of the world. The theme for the Accra 2011 Conference is ‘Media & Democracy towards sustainable stability’. The Conference aims to examine the broad impact of the media on democracy.
BACKGROUND: Africa’s emerging democracies in the last two decades have had to co-exist with a vibrant media contestation. The media has relatively emerged as a formidable constituent as it vie for legitimacy in representing the broad masses. This contestation provides the framework for critical examination on how the media impacts on the democratic process. The Conference therefore aims to address and examine various issues of media in the practise of democratic governance in Africa. The event is open to academics, media industry professionals, government agencies, policymakers, regulators, UN agencies, donors, civil society organisations, independent consultants and research groups and students.
