Global Perspectives on Journalism Education

May 18, 2010 • Ethics and Quality • by

Beate Josephi of the School of Communication and Arts at Edith Cowan University, Perth, publishes a new book about journalism education.

The core of Josephi’s book, Journalism Education in Countries with Limited Media Freedom, lauds the power of journalism education to inspire change. Tackling twelve case studies (China, Singapore, Cambodia, Palestine, Oman, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Brazil, Russia, Romania and Croatia), Josephi points to the fact that journalism education is not necessarily indicative of a country’s media system. While wealthy nations are free to mediate the terms of education, access to media education in poorer countries tends to fall to the whims and influence of foreign NGOs.
