The global news challenge: Assessing changes in international broadcast news consumption in Africa and South Asia

By Anne Geniets


The Global News Challenge – Assessing changes in international broadcast news consumption in Africa and South Asia: This report is the second stage of a three-phase project on ‘International News: Provision, Consumption and Trust in a Rapidly Changing Broadcasting Environment’. The project examines eight countries and aims to explore the increasingly competitive provision of news by international providers, changing patterns of consumption and use of these providers, and the ways in which trust may be changing in a world of news plenty as opposed to news scarcity. The eight countries that the project examines include six in three different language zones in Africa, Senegal and Cameroon, Kenya and Nigeria and Algeria and Egypt, together with two countries in South Asia, India and Pakistan. This phase 2 report examines changing news consumption patterns across the whole population in six African countries, India and Pakistan in the context of increased competition and media liberalisation in these eight markets
