Research title: Framing Peace: Exploring Conciliatory Radio Programming in Burundi and Uganda.

Research project: Dr William Tayeebwa is working on a research project entitled ‘Framing Peace: Exploring Conciliatory Radio Programming in Burundi and Uganda’ using the peace-journalism theoretical framework to interrogate the application of Western journalism norms and practices in the context of Uganda and Burundi. The research project contributes to the re-conceptualization of the concept of ‘peace’ and ‘peace journalism’ based on East African socio-cultural values and practices.
