The African Leadership Centre (ALC) is delighted to announce our next (online) research seminar on Tuesday 19 April 2022 at 11:30 – 13:00 PM BST/ 13:30-15:00 PM EAT.
The session will host a seminar presentation titled: Political and Media Analysis on the Tigray Conflict in Ethiopia.
This study reviews patterns of domestic and international media reporting and the role of disinformation, misinformation, and media bias in the Tigray conflict, which has been raging since November 2020.
To analyse the role of the media in the conflict, this study reviewed local and international media, conducted interviews with local and international journalists and analysts, and consulted secondary literature. Patterns of reporting by international and local media exhibited fairly significant levels of divergence in the issues that were selected for reporting and how they were reported during these four phases of the conflict.
