Advisory Board

by Admin on 20 November 2009

MEDIeA’s International Advisory Board was established to help ensure that the program’s agenda is relevant to current African and broader international policy and research debates. The Board will actively participate in conferences and workshops organized by the program’s research team, starting with the conference to be held in Dar es Salaam in December 2009. Continuous dialogue will be sought between the research team and the Board.

The members of the Board represent different professional profiles, encompassing multilateral development agencies, African universities with a research profile on media, democracy and communication, African civil society organizations, and international universities involved in research relevant to the MEDIeA program.
