Ethics and Coverage of Labour Migration in Africa

Ethics and Coverage of Labour Migration in Africa

This course will provide an extensive overview of labour migration in Africa as a means to discuss the ethical considerations journalists must be aware of when reporting. This will include analyses of regional trends and how they tie to social, cultural and economic conventions. In turn, these elements will be discussed in relation to their impact of gender identity politics. The course will highlight how journalists can report on these intersecting factors in a manner that does not compromise the overall safety of their sources and affected communities. We will make reference to the principles of Constructive Journalism as a way to intercept and correct ethical blunders.
