DW Akademie and the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences cordially invite you to attend the fifth Deutsche Welle Media Dialogue on May 21, 2014.
KENYA'S MEDIA LANDSCAPE: A SUCCESS STORY WITH SERIOUS STRUCTURAL CHALLENGES
Kenya's 2010 Constitution guarantees press freedom in a way the country has never seen. However, the concentration of media ownership and pending consensus on new media legislation are tarnishing the triumphs of Kenya's media liberalization and development. Regulation of news content, including hate speech and political bias, as well as journalistic standards are also issues stirring discussion and staining the image of Kenya as a role model for other East African countries. This symposium aims to evaluate the successes and challenges of Kenya's media landscape.
