By offering emerging scholars the opportunity to present their research in
a 3-minute-thesis format and get feedback from their peers and industry
professionals, we hope to contribute to intensified exchange and
networking and to develop practical coping mechanisms for any difficulties
and pressures they face in their research such as (but not limited to)
choosing a relevant topic, grant and funding issues, access to data and

In a casual format similar to “speed dating”, post graduate and doctoral
students will be able to propose their answers to these questions and
convey them to their peers by presenting their research (project) to the
audience in 3 minutes maximum, with a 3-minute Q&A. These contributions
will finally be taken up and discussed in a debate with representatives of
academic institutions and media development organisations.

This session is part of the event series jointly organized by IAMCR media
sector development working group and MEDAS21 as 2021 Nairobi
