China's Challenge to Western Media in Africa

The Global Media Journal published in its Autumn/Winter 2014 edition a study titled "Media Development with Chinese Characteristics" by Iginio Gagliardone, University of Oxford. 

Building on fieldwork in Ghana, Ethiopia and Kenya, the article explains to which extent China's entrance in the media and telecommunications sector actually challenges the dominant, Western-driven approaches to media development, promoting a state centered vision of the information society.
