Abstract:The point of departure for this issue is the five-year NORHED project, 'Building capacity for a changing media environment in Uganda', funded by the Norwegian development agency NORAD. The focus of Part 1 of this issue is gender parity in journalism training, capacity building and within media practice. Part 2 focuses on the media coverage of the Oscar Pistorius case in South Africa, which illustrates the continued challenges of media representation particularly regarding race and gender.
