Author(s):Allah Nawaz 
Journal: Acta Universitatis Danubius. Communicatio
Publisher:
Abstract
| Pages: 5-17
Political inaction is a major ‗Barrier‘ to the progress of democratic values and systems in a society. It is more critical in the developing countries like Pakistan. A huge body of research on political apathy and anger in Pakistan is reporting over and over on the causes and consequences of this pathetic psychology. All that is true however, rays of hope are always there provided nations continue searching for the opportunities through scientific and rigorous research accompanied with sincerity and sense of responsibility at all the decision making levels of the state. This paper postulates a solution model for the issue in the perspectives of Pakistan by capitalizing on the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the Instant Political Transformation of the developing countries like Egypt & Libya. The New Public Sphere (NPS) is populated with Global Civil Society (GCS) where International Citizens are connected together 24/7 from any corner of the Global Village and involved in use of ICT for Social Activism. Pakistan now has millions of Internet and Cell-users who are the part of GCS and waiting for a ‗Trigger‘ to switch from the ‗Informal Activism to Formal & Political Activism‘ through NPS.

Media Concentration and the Coverage of the 2013 General Election in Kenya: Democracy at the Crossroads

Author(s):Francis Simiyu Tome

Abstract
| Pages: 45-71
This research explores the relationship between journalistic freedom and media concentration in Kenya through the lens of the propaganda model (Baker, 2007). The research is based on two features of the 2013 General Election in Kenya: (1) a survey of the publics‘ confidence in the conduct of journalists during the 2013 General election in Kenya and (2) a survey of journalists` perceptions of influence of media ownership on journalistic independence in Kenya. This research concludes that an increase in media concentration in Kenya has led to the shrinking of the democratic space. 71 percent of the surveyed Journalists believe media diversity in Kenya is at risk whilst 69 percent believe that viewpoint discrimination is occasioned by unhealthy Media Ownership trends in Kenya. The research also indicates that the perceived climate of distrust dogging the mainstream media in Kenya has seen the public turn to citizen journalism as an alternative source of information. This survey raises further questions about future implications for journalistic independence given the dominance of media concentration in Kenya.
