About Journal

Africa Media Review (ISSN 0258-4913) provides a forum for research and debate on communication theory, practice and policy in Africa. It seeks to raise awareness about the interconnections between media, communication and social processes in Africa, and how these shape and are affected by policies and practices at global, regional and local levels. It welcomes contributions on all aspects of communication informed by or relevant to the predicaments of Africa.

Africa Media Review is a collaborative publication between the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) based in Dakar, Senegal and the African Council for Communication Education (ACCE), Nairobi, Kenya. It is published three times a year and covers articles in English and in French.
