              INVITATION   	DW Akademie and the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University
                   of Applied Sciences cordially invite
    					you  to  take  part in the 5th Deutsche Welle Media

             CHAIRED  BY     	Prof.  Dr.  Christoph Schmidt (Head, Academic
                  Department, DW Akademie)
                                     	Prof.   Dr.   Michael  Krzeminski
                  (Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences)

           KEY  TOPIC    	Kenya’s  2010  Constitution  guarantees press
                  freedom in a way the country has never seen. However, the
                  concentration    of    media    ownership    		and
                  disagreement  on the new media legislation are tarnishing
                  the   triumphs   of   Kenya’s  media  liberalization  and
                  development.  Regulation of 		news content, including
                  hate  speech  and political bias, as well as journalistic
                  standards   are   also  issues  stirring  discussion  and
                  staining  the  		image  of  Kenya as a role model for
                  other East African countries.
      				This  symposium  aims  to evaluate the successes and
                  challenges of Kenya’s media landscape.

            PROGRAM    Two sessions will explore the following areas:

                  Session 1: Media Legislation and Media Ownership in Kenya
                                 The  focus  will  be on structural, legal,
                   political   and   economic   aspects  of  Kenya’s  media
                   landscape   and   will   provide   analyses   of  recent
                   developments   and   future   trends,   including  media
                   legislation  and  the  challenges of media concentration
                   and cross-media ownership.

                  Session    2:    Journalistic    Standards   and   Ethnic
                  Politicization in Kenyan Media Coverage
                  This session will be committed to the specific aspects of
                  journalistic  work  and  their  impact.  It  will include
                  issues   such  as  self-censorship  and  corruption,  the
                  training  of  journalists, conflict sensitive reporting –
                  with  a  special  focus on speech and election coverage –
                  and how the issues relate to technological developments.
