    Kill Bill!: Ugandan human rights organizations' attempts to influence the media's coverage of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill2011Inngår i: Culture, Health and Sexuality, ISSN 1369-1058, E-ISSN 1464-5351, Vol. 13, nr 8, s. 917-931Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill of October 2009 caused an international outcry and sparked intense debate in the local and international media. Particularly contentious was its proposal to impose the death penalty for acts of ‘aggravated homosexuality’. Through a quantitative content analysis of 176 items from two main daily newspapers, the government-owned New Vision and the privately-owned Daily Monitor, over the period October 2009–June 2010, combined with qualitative interviews with human rights defenders in Uganda, this study explores attempts made by local human rights advocates to influence the media's coverage of the Bill and the extent to which these attempts were successful. The study finds that while there are significant differences between the frequency of reporting on the Bill in the two newspapers, both papers devoted little editorial space to the public health and human rights concerns put forward by local human rights organizations. Despite Uganda's recent and often lauded history of openly addressing HIV/AIDS, human right organizations' attempts to highlight the Bill's potentially adverse effects on the country's ability to tackle the epidemic effectively were only partially successful and, interestingly, awarded much less attention than the potential human rights implications of the proposed change in legislation.

    Perilous Silences and Counterproductive Narratives Pertaining to HIV/AIDS in the Ugandan, Lesotho and Namibian Press2011Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Research on Western mainstream media’s framing of HIV/AIDS in the 1980’s, showed that media narratives influenced audiences’ understanding of the epidemic, as well as society’s responses. Subsequently, by analyzing a society’s mass media and its framing of HIV/AIDS, it is possible to explore what understandings are given preferential treatment in that society, as well as explore what social change those narratives indirectly or directly facilitate. Such an analysis is particularly important in Sub-Saharan Africa, the continent most affected by HIV/AIDS and which has struggled to reverse the course of the epidemic. This dissertation has in five separate articles, not only identified and described media narratives on HIV/AIDS and the closely related topic of same-sex sexuality in three countries hard-hit by the epidemic –Lesotho, Namibia and Uganda – but also discussed the potential effects of persistent silences, as well as narratives that are counterproductive to the countries’ ability to respond to their epidemics. The research uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches: content analysis of independent and government-controlled print media products, semi-structured interviews with media practitioners and representatives from organizations that seek to influence the media agenda, as well as analysis of legislative and policy documents.

    The articles discuss a range of persistent silences and counterproductive narratives on HIV/AIDS in the three countries. Overall, the media is found to largely fail in providing its readers with narratives that contain many of the particular factors – economic, social, cultural, biological, as well as those related to stigma and discrimination –that fuel their epidemics. The research however also finds differences between the countries and the types of media. In particular privately-owned media is found to play important role in terms of acknowledging the existence of same-sex sexuality as well as relevance in relation to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment services in Namibian and Ugandan.

    Abstract [en]

    Regional studies show that Lesotho outperforms other countries in southern Africa in terms of awarding coverage to HIV and AIDS. Through qualitative interviews, this study examines the motivations, experiences, and perceived challenges among media workers, which could explain the high coverage. While a high level of personal commitment seems to be the outcome of interrelated factors — such as media workers’ personal experience of the country’s high HIV prevalence and high mortality rate — Lesotho’s political leadership and various government initiatives, notably the unique ‘Know Your Status’ campaign, were singled out as a key factor behind the high coverage. Moreover, journalists and editors are often consciously exploiting the mass media’s potential agendasetting function in order to raise attention to HIV and AIDS. Although covering the HIV epidemic has become significantly easier in Lesotho because of government efforts, government and public officials are simultaneously identified as the main obstacle to more comprehensive coverage.

    Abstract [en]

    The article critically discusses the events arising from the finalization of the NamibianNational HIV/AIDS Policy of 2007. A series of consultative meetings throughoutNamibia produced a progressive draft policy that recognized individuals engagedin same-sex sexual relationships and emphasized the distinct vulnerabilities of thegroup. However, despite solid epidemiological support and stakeholders’ endorsementof inclusion, the key section dealing with same-sex relations never made itinto print. By using document analyses, interviews and media content analysis, thearticle concludes that state-sanctioned discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexualand transgendered (LGBT) individuals, outlined in existing Namibian criminallaws, also resulted in a denial of their rights to health in the new HIV/AIDS policy.Moreover, the study found that the state-sanctioned discrimination is reproduced inthe state-owned print media, and that LGBT individuals are dependent on the independentmedia for visibility. The implications of the media discourses are discussedusing an agenda setting perspective.

    Abstract [fr]

    Le projet de loi contre l'homosexualité d'octobre 2009 en Ouganda a provoqué un tollé international et déclenché un vif débat dans les médias locaux et internationaux. Particulièrement controversée, a été la proposition d'imposer la peine de mort pour punir les actes «d'homosexualité aggravée». Grâce à une analyse de contenu de 176 articles extraits des deux quotidiens principaux – le New Vision qui appartient au gouvernement; le Daily Monitor qui appartient à un groupe privé – et publiés entre octobre 2009 et juin 2010, ainsi que des entretiens qualitatifs avec des défenseurs des droits humains en Ouganda, cette étude explore les activités des militants des droits humains en Ouganda qui avaient pour but d'influencer le traitement de ce sujet par les médias, et dans quelle mesure ces activités ont été fructueuses. L'étude révèle qu'alors qu'il existe des différences significatives en termes de fréquence du traitement du sujet par les deux journaux, ceux-ci ont consacré peu d'espace éditorial aux questions relatives à la santé publique et aux droits humains mises en avant par les organisations des droits humains locales. En dépit de l'histoire récente et souvent applaudie de l'ouverture avec laquelle l'Ouganda a abordé la question du VIH/Sida, les activités des organisations des droits humains, mettant en avant les potentiels effets néfastes du projet de loi sur la capacité du pays à s'attaquer efficacement à l'épidémie, n'ont réussi que partiellement et, curieusement, ont beaucoup moins suscité l'intérêt que les implications en matière de droits humains du projet de loi proposé.

    Abstract [es]

    El proyecto de ley contra la homosexualidad de octubre de 2009 en Uganda ha causado una repulsa internacional y ha generado un intenso debate en los medios de comunicación locales e internacionales. Especialmente controvertida fue la propuesta de imponer la pena de muerte por actos de ‘homosexualidad agravada’. Mediante un análisis cuantitativo de contenido con 176 reportajes de dos principales diarios, el New Vision, de propiedad estatal, y el Daily Monitor, de propiedad privada, durante el periodo de octubre de 2009 a junio de 2010, combinado con entrevistas cualitativas con defensores de derechos humanos en Uganda, en este estudio analizamos los esfuerzos realizados por defensores locales de los derechos humanos para influir en el debate en los medios de comunicación sobre el proyecto de ley y hasta qué punto tuvieron éxito estos esfuerzos. En el estudio se observa que si bien existen importantes diferencias en cuanto a la frecuencia de informar sobre el proyecto de ley en los dos periódicos, ambos diarios dedicaban poco espacio editorial a las preocupaciones relativas a la salud pública y los derechos humanos presentadas por las organizaciones locales de derechos humanos. Pese a la reciente historia de Uganda, que muchas veces ha sido alabada por su modo de abordar abiertamente el problema del VIH/sida, los esfuerzos de las organizaciones de derechos humanos para destacar los efectos potencialmente negativos del proyecto de ley en la capacidad del país para luchar con eficacia contra la epidemia tuvieron solamente un éxito parcial, y curiosamente se prestó mucha menos atención a estos efectos del proyecto de ley que a las posibles repercusiones para los derechos humanos.

    Abstract [en]

    The Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill of October 2009 caused an international outcry and sparked intense debate in the local media. This article explores to what degree a discriminatory social environment manifests itself in the Ugandan print media and discusses the potential implications for media's coverage of contentious policy options such as the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. A content analysis of 115 items from two daily newspapers (the government-owned New Vision and the privately owned the Daily Monitor, between October and December 2009) indicates the existence of two separate house styles; this is in spite of the fact that both newspapers reproduce the surrounding society's homophobia, albeit with different frequency. Unlike the New Vision, the Daily Monitor includes coverage on homophobia and discrimination, as well as provides space for criticism of the Bill. By acknowledging discrimination and its negative impact, the newspaper de-legitimizes homophobia and problematizes the proposed Anti-homosexuality Bill for their readers.

    The European refugee crises through the lens of “the others”2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the midst of polarizing media discourses on the refugee crises in Europe, the following study analyses how the European refuges crises is reiterated in a non-European media, by analyzing the largest Ugandan newspaper The Daily Monitor including readers’ comments throughout 2015. Uganda, a developing country is the ninth largest recipient of refugees in the world and has in waves taken in large groups of refugees from foremost Sudan and later South Sudan, Burundi and DRC.

    This study attempts from the vantage point of a developing country and non-European perceptive understand the crises narratives dominating European policy and media coverage. The analysis of media texts and reader comments indicates an acceptance that the unexpected high number of refugees trying to enter the European Union poses a challenge to some core European Union principles on freedom of movement inside Schengen, as well as ideals and subscription to UN Human Rights standards. Besides identifying the clusters making up the coverage of the refugee crises, the analysis uncovers the textual building blocks of a much more insidious theme of non-Europeans as unwanted. This overarching theme could be tied into colonial discourses where the Others are understood as less valued humans, a problem-to-find-solutions-to, and whose knocking on the door of Europe is entirely unwanted. Although the Ugandan press reiterates the European Union’s agonizing narrative of clashing of on one hand ideals and self-image of being a bastion of Human Rights and on the other hand, everyday politics of carrying the financial burden of refugees in the midst of xenophobia trends across Europe; readers’ comments simultaneously appears to welcome the dethroning of Europe from its half a century long self-proclaimed Human Rights supremacy.

    The rise and fall of a contentious social policy option – narratives around the Ugandan Anti‑Homosexuality Bill in the domestic press2013Inngår i: Journal of African Media Studies, ISSN 2040-199X, E-ISSN 1751-7974, Vol. 5, nr 3, s. 275-294Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2009, the Anti-Homosexuality Bill was introduced to the Ugandan parliament for consideration. This article analyses how the domestic press, most notably the privately owned, substantially changed the narratives around the Bill during the first eight months after it had been introduced to the general public. The study argues that although a traditional content analysis reveals changes in media's attention, media narratives, it does not tell us much about the intricate interplay behind those emerging narratives. The article thus argues for a need to supplement content analysis with a broader analysis of the socio-political context, including transnational anti-gay and human rights activism, international politics on gender and sexuality, as well as aid dependence for understanding changing media narratives on a domestic social policy option.

    Twitter4HRs promotion: a study of a sexual minority rights network’s twitter communication during the 2016 Ugandan general election.2016Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Uganda has since the introduction of the anti-homosexuality bill of 2009, experienced an increasingly polarized media discourse on sexual minority rights. Rights that are indisputable for other Ugandan citizens most notably rights to privacy, health and indeed life, are questioned in relation to sexual minorities in mainstream media. The following study analyses a Ugandan NGO’s utilization of Twitter to supply the domestic public with counter-narratives and attempts to assert sexual minority rights in connection with the general election which will take place February 18 2016. The tentative analysis indicates that while Twitter is actively used as a space for highlighting organizational activity and events, information sharing, emotional support for group members, it is also used as a tool for political commentary on both news media coverage of sexual minority issues, and perhaps more importantly a platform for discussing the political candidates’ positioning of themselves in relation to rights issues. The official Twitter account is thus an important tool for political commentary and dissemination of counter narratives on sexual minority rights. The study concludes that Twitter, although restricting through its format, provides minority groups important access to public space otherwise denied on traditional media platforms.

    Understanding violence as a barrier to HIV-service uptake among LGBT and sex workers in Sub-Saharan AfricaInngår i: African Journal of AIDS ResearchArtikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The negative effects of criminalization on HIV service uptake by MSM, IDU and SW’

    have received significant attention and it is widely recognized in the public health

    community that de-criminalization efforts are important. Through a document analysis

    of 198 submissions made to the Global Commission on HIV and the Law in 2011, the

    following study however suggest that although decriminalization efforts of MSM, SW

    and IDU needs our continued attention, efforts will not produce the intended results

    unless the issue of violence experienced by key vulnerable populations most notably

    perpetrated by law enforcement are addressed. The study’s findings highlight that

    key populations’experiences of violence is not only a serious human rights abuse, but

    an important barrier to service uptake. Targeted training of law enforcement and the

    judiciary branches is thus of the utmost importance in order to ensure a full return on

    public health investments and legal reforms.

    Abstract [en]

    Many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa suffer from endemic corruption, which disrupts developmentefforts. Although ICTs is no magic wand, several studies indicate that ICT can serve as an important toolfor combatting corruption by increasing transparency, and enable citizens to hold public officialsaccountable. Anti-corruption efforts are however dependent on strong political will and rule of law to besuccessful. A policy typically contains description of government intentions formulated into concreteobjectives, as well as the rationale behind government targets. Furthermore, policies guide programmaticresponses. The aim of this study is to explore how ICTs’ anti-corruption potential have been understood atthe policy level over time in ICT policies from nine Sub-Saharan African countries between 2000 and2018. The study concludes that although there are signs of a growing understanding of ICTs as a multipurposetool for anti-corruption towards the end of the period, most policies fail to produce acomprehensive and explicit narratives as well as statements affirming political will. The policyenvironment’s development trajectory, albeit positive, thus leaves room for improvement in termshighlighting ICTs potential contributions.

    Mobile Phones as a Citizen-Controlled Anti-corruption Tool in East Africa - A Literature Review2017Inngår i: Information and Communication Technologies for Development / [ed] Choudrie, J; Islam, MS; Wahid, F; Bass, JM; Priyatma, JE, 2017, s. 753-764Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite agreement amongst donors, business and political leaders concerning the negative effects of corruption, levels have not fallen in East Africa. The continued high levels of corruption, reassert the need for a better understanding if mobile phones, if prolific enough, can be an effective tool against corruption. Through a literature review of ten years M4D and ICT4D research on mobiles as a citizens-controlled tool for (a) accessing government information either directly or through citizens’ crowd-sourcing of information and (b) mobilization to demand greater government transparency, as well as, (c) instantaneous reporting of corruption in East Africa; this study attempts to gauge the status of this research field. The review included the ten highest ranking open access ICT4D journals, and six journals from parent disciplines; information system and development studies, as well as conference proceedings from the M4D conferences, and the SIG Globdev Workshops. The review concludes that earlier optimism around mobiles’ potential to support citizens’ counter-corruption actions, has not resulted in a significant body of research. Nor does the literature provide any substantive clues as to why this urgent topic has not been explored more fully.

    Can the concept “political opportunity structure” inform M4D research?2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile phone acquisition and usage in Sub-Saharan Africa has seen a tremendous growth over the past decade. In the wake of this expansion, the technology has often been ascribed the role of a potential transformer in diverse areas, such as governance and democratization, civil society mobilization, transparency and anti-corruption. A reoccurring theme in much of the literature, is a taken for granted causality between access to mobile technology and civil society participation and ultimately empowerment of the same connected citizens.

    Although social movement theory have long recognized the importance of the political context as a key determining factor for the emergence of social movements, their impact and their longevity, few scholars have paid attention to the concepts of  "political opportunity structure" in relation to M4D (Mobile Communication for Development).  

    The following paper will explore how this concept can inform our understanding of when and where, i.e., under what socio-political conditions mobile technology seem to become a mobiliser and tool to claim space to participate in political processes. The paper will attempt to conceptualize how perceived political opportunity, and indeed constraints could be understood in relation to M4D. The paper departs from an assumption that mobile phones contains a transformative potential, but argues that whether it become enlisted as a tool by social actors is dependent on their understanding of the medium and parameters such as, but not limited to, the receptiveness of the formal political system, the existence of allies within government or the formal political system, the expected monetary and personal costs for social mobilization as well as likely outcomes of collective action. The research argues that existing political institutions should not be treated as epiphenomenal, but rather seen as important structures warranting attention, in order to understand mobiles as a tool for participation.

    ICTs and Opportunities of Empowerment in a Context of State-Sanctioned Homophobia: The case of the LGBTQI community in Kampala2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    After decades of growing acceptance of LGBTQI human rights in the West, Uganda began an African backlash in 2009, when it introduced an Anti-Homosexuality Bill. Even if the Bill was eventually defeated, it signaled the beginning of a new era of state-sponsored homophobia and wide-spread societal discrimination. State-sponsored persecution has however not silenced the Ugandan LGBTQI community. In the following reflections we explore the Ugandan LGBTQI community’s remarkable resilience and quest for change and in particular their use of ICTs for empowerment. Based on a pilot study conducted in November 2016, and ongoing online observations, tentative results are that the community organizes their communication practices around a division between intra-group organization (so-called deep information), and broadcasting and human-rights advocacy (surface information), due to perceived risks as well as opportunities of different communication modes and platforms.

    Upplagt för konflikt: Hur snusbranschen marknadskommunicerar på en hårt reglerad marknad2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna kandidatuppsats har varit att ta reda på hur företag inom snusbranschen planerar sin kommunikation och lyckas nå ut till sina konsumenter trots de hårda marknadsföringsregleringarna som finns. Även vilka andra intressenter snusföretagen kommunicerar med och vad syftet med den kommunikationen är av intresse. Frågeställningen som följts har således varit: Hur ser marknadskommunikationen inom snusbranschen ut, varför ser den ut som den gör och vilka konsekvenser får lagstiftningen på kommunikationen?

    Metoden som används för att erhålla information för att kunna uppnå vårt syfte och svara på vår frågeställning har varit intervjuer med personer inom snusbranschen som har särskilda kunskaper om just kommunikation. De teorier uppsatsen vilar på har varit Kotler & Kellers marknadskommunikationsmix och Cornelissens intressentförvaltningsmodell. Marknadskommunikationsmixen tar upp olika metoder och kanaler företag kan använda för att nå ut till sina konsumenter medan Cornelissens intressentförvaltningsmodell visar relationen mellan organisationen och intressenterna. Resultatet av undersökningen visar att snusföretagen lyckas nå ut till sina intressenter trots hårda regleringar. De få plattformar företagen kan utnyttja blir otroligt viktiga och försöker från företagens sida utnyttjas till fullo. Företagen blir, på grund av de vaga formuleringarna i lagstiftningen, tvungna att testa gränserna för vilken kommunikation som är tillåten. Kommunikationen med andra intressenter än sina konsumenter och investerare blir viktig. Politiker och andra beslutsfattare är viktiga intressenter då de kan påverka företagens drift och kommunikationsvägar.

    Att förstå mediekritik: Begreppsliga, empiriska och teoretiska studier av svensk mediekritik 1998-20132015Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Media criticism is studied as a concept, as critical expression and as a force for social change. The concept of media criticism is developed in relation to different forms of critical practice, theory about criticism and critique and as a part of theories about media accountability. Media criticism as a force of social change is approached by exploring concepts for the analysis of social and cultural forms of media criticism.

    Four kinds of media texts published in Sweden between 1998 and 2013 were analysed to investigate critical expression: television columns, reflective books on journalism written by journalists, debate articles and letters to the editor. They were studied in terms of how they address actors, content and forms of critique and responsiveness. The methodology used was reflexive interpretation mainly driven by insight, but also with an emancipative intention. Qualitative text analysis was the major method used, combined with quantitative content analysis.

    The concept of media criticism is developed on three levels as normative and institutional, focused on established norms and values, norm shaping and formative, focused on establishing new norms and values and openness and practice, making it possible for many people to contribute to critique. Media criticism can further be specified in three dimensions comprising its intentions, the object of critique and the process of critique. Taken together they establish different forms of criticality in which a communicative intention is seen as essential. 

    The dissertation shows that media criticism should be given a more independent role in relation to the media accountability frame. Critical cultures and practices should be analysed in their relations to accountability cultures and practices. The concepts of institution, formative and formation were used for analysing the social and cultural forms of media criticism, where institutions are understood as the stable forms of media criticism, formatives as the changeable forms and formations as the combination of the two. Criticism and critical practice potentially have an important role to play for change in the media, journalism and society by addressing issues in an open and reflexive way. The approach to media criticism developed in the dissertation is termed critical institutionalism and aims to bridge the gap between critical social science, the sociology of critique and institutional analysis as applied in media studies.

    “China Going Out” or the “World Going In”? The Shanghai World Expo 2010 in the Swedish Media2013Inngår i: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 20, nr 4, s. 83-97Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Public diplomacy, nation branding and soft power are the theoretical notions used in this analysis of the Shanghai Expo 2010 and its reception in the Swedish media. This article studies the full coverage during 2010 of the Expo in the four main Swedish dailies. First, a general overview of the reports is presented and then a focused analysis of how the media texts deal with (a) reasons for arranging/participating (b) representation of China/Sweden (c) reporting about outcomes of the Expo and (d) reporting on the international exhibition phenomena. The major conclusion of the study is that Expo 2010 contributed to China's "going global" strategy in a specific way; rather than being used as a vehicle for China "going out" in the world, it became a vehicle for Sweden, and the world,"going in" to China. Another observation discussed is that the international exhibition form was used to de-mediate interactions and relations, offering situated meetings in a unique event context as a node for further mediated communication.

    Activist Capitals in Network Societies: Towards a Typology for Studying Networking Power in Contemporary Activist Demands2014Inngår i: First Monday, ISSN 1396-0466, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 19, nr 8Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Network societies are characterized by social media — media that are supposed to level out power hierarchies — making political participation more inclusive and equal. By developing a typology for studying networking power within activist demands in network societies, such techno–optimistic/deterministic assumptions are questioned. This typology is based on Bourdieu’s conceptual framework of social fields, habitus and capitals. It revolves around participating, mobilising, connecting and engaging capital and how these intersect, overlap and are used for negotiating recognition which I argue is of pivotal importance for upholding core positions among activists. Such core positions are related to networking power, i.e., knowing how and being in a position to network in order to decide about courses of events in the organisation of the demand/social field and its actions. This largely theoretical account is exemplified from an ethno– and nethnographic study of a group of middle–class activists in southern Stockholm using online platforms in tandem with more traditional off–line activist activities to organise and mobilise participation.

    Amplification and Virtual Back-Patting: The Rationalities of Social Media Uses in the Nina Larsson Web-Campaign2014Inngår i: Political Campaigning in the Information Age / [ed] Ashu M. G. Solo, IGI Global, 2014, s. 51-65Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter intends to explore the rationalities of politicians' social media uses in web-campaigning in a party-based democracy. I will do this from an in-depth case study of a Swedish Liberal Party politician, Nina Larsson, who with the help of a PR- agency utilized several social media platforms in her campaign to become re-elected to the Swedish Parliament in 2010. By analysing how and for what purposes Larsson used social media in her web-campaign, this chapter concludes that even though discourses of instrumental rationality, to strategically target specific voter groups, and of communicative rationality, to establish loci for electorate-politician deliberations, were common to make her practices relevant, Nina primarily used social media to amplify certain offline news media texts by recirculating them in her social media networks as well as to commend and support other liberal party members. Hence from this case the chapter concludes that web-campaigning on social media are also used for expressive purposes, to negotiate and maintaing an attractive political image within the party hierarchy.
