Media Freedoms in Changing Frames: Tanzania under a magnifying glass

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Multiplicity of voices does not automatically mean that relevance and strengthening of democracy are achieved. The journalistic culture and the media mode, inherited from previous phases of social history, are changing slowly. Tanzania serves as an example of the African continent, today much more varied than before, but still struggling for a profile of its own. Perhaps the media revolution does not come with the mobile phone, after all. Perhaps the free voices in East Africa are rappers.
