  • JHR INTERNS ORGANISE FORUM ON HUMAN RIGHTS REPORTING IN AFRICA

    Former Director of the University of Ghana’s School of Communication Studies Prof. Audrey Gadzekpo has advised human rights journalists to “always examine the reasoning behind the acts” when covering human rights stories. She encouraged human rights journalists to report within context by interviewing more people in order to bring out different perspectives in their stories. She further advised student journalists to use appropriate language in order not to offend their readers and also to take time to research in order to develop good stories. Prof. Gadzekpo was speaking at a forum held at the Ghana International Press Centre, organised by AUCC JHR intern Kallan Lyons and her counterpart Kristian Jebson at the Ghana Institute of Journalism.

    The forum was held on Feb. 11, 2014, on the topic: “What is the African perspective in the field of human rights journalism? How can this perspective be represented and reinforced in the Ghanaian and international media?”

    A lecturer of AUCC, Mr. Ogochukwu Nweke, a panelist at the forum, was of the view that human rights issues were often reported without respect for African religion and culture and urged human rights journalists and activists not to mix cultural and religious issues when reporting on human rights issues in Africa. “Why do I have to exaggerate the poverty situation of my people in order to meet the funding criteria of western human rights organisations,” he queried?
