Challenges For Media Development In Liberia
Ken Harper, director of the Newhouse Center for Global Engagement at Syracuse University in the United States, has spent seven years working on media development in Liberia.
“Only local media can produce journalism that’s relevant to people: it’s culturally sensitive and understands the local conditions,” Harper says.
In this audio interview, he explains his personal journey from the United States to Liberia, where he learnt about its culture, resilience and drive to rebuild a fairer society after the civil war partly through better, more powerful journalism.
