Neuerscheinung: Lena von Naso: The Media and Aid in Sub-Saharan Africa. Whose News?

Dr. Lena von Naso: " " Series: Routledge Contemporary Africa, Routledge, 2018


Closely examining the relationship between foreign correspondents of international news media and humanitarian organisations, Lena von Naso shows how the aid and media sectors cooperate in Africa in a unique way. Based on more than 70 interviews with foreign correspondents and aid workers operating across Africa, the book argues that the changing nature of foreign news and of aid is forcing them to form a deep co-dependency that is having a serious and largely unnoticed effect on Western news coverage.
