The Ethics of Engagement

Media, Conflict and Democracy in Africa

Herman Wasserman

  • Combines journalism theory, cultural studies and political studies as theoretical frameworks
  • Critiques existing normative frameworks for the media and professional ethics and proposes a new framework, an "ethics of listening"
  • Brings together a range of examples of democratization conflicts from different countries in the continent to build an argument about the media's role in African democracies
