Edition International Media Studies:

DW  Akademie  has  published “Kenya’s Media Landscape: A Success Story with

Serious Structural Challenges”

The  publication provides a supplement to the presentations and discussions

held at the fifth annual DW Media Dialogue in Bonn May 2014. The collection

of  essays  by  participants  from  Kenya,  the UK, Switzerland and Germany

offers  academic  insight  into key research findings on the challenges and

opportunities  that  Kenya’s  media  practitioners  face nowadays. In-depth

analysis   and  profound  expertise  of  Kenya’s  historical  and  cultural

background  allow  for  a comprehensive and multi-layered assessment of the

current development of the country’s media landscape.

Kenya's 2010 Constitution guarantees press freedom in a way the country has

never  previously  seen.  However, the concentration of media ownership and

pending  consensus  on 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 provoking discussion and sullying the image of Kenya as a

role model for other East African countries.
