Symposium on Foreign Aid and Journalism in Latin America and Africa

This symposium will examine the influence and impact over the years of foreign aid on journalism practice and education.

In so doing, it aims at developing a research agenda to examine issues and problems arising from the intersection between journalism, foreign aid, public diplomacy and foreign policy in historical and current contexts.
