Group Research Report

  • The report must

    • relate to the theoretical models of media systems

    • end with a critical assessment, on your part, of the country’s media system.

      • “Critical” does not mean criticism, but rather an assessment where you display your ability to take the material and draw conclusions from it, with the conclusions supported by solid reasoning.

  • Refer to the political, economic and press background sections in the examples given

  • Use in-text citation for paraphrased material

  • Use quotes if you do not paraphrase the original

  • Reference list at end

    • Reference list must match references in text

  • Use at least 10 sources particularly scholarly sources

    • In the first years of independence from colonial rule, journalism in Pakistan was an avocation of political activists who pursued it with a missionary zeal(Dhar, 1985).

    • Even the use of the press for national development was poorly executed: ‘In declared policies concerning mass communication, Tanzania [was] quite an advanced case—it [was] theimplementation that [was] lacking’ (Kivikuru, 1989, p.118, italics in original).

    • Additionally, in the politics of these pre-democratic societies, the press was often used as a tool in political infighting between different factions(Scannell, 1995). As a result, ‘Tanzania emerged as a nation, but without a press of its own’ (Ng’wanakilala, 1981, p. 17).
