The Politics of Corruption and The Media In Africa

Helge Rønning
KEYWORDS: The politics of corruption and the media in Africa

ABSTRACT:

This paper explores the linkages between debates about corruption and the role of the media in Africa. It advances arguments about how citizens in Africa encounter corruption – both grand and petty – and how they perceive it, as well as factors that may contribute to the development of corrupt practices. These reflections are then linked to a discussion of how the press in Africa deals with corruption and whether the media may serve as a strong deterrent in combating this form of criminal behaviour.
