SIC Faculty Member Edits Elections Communication Guidelines

Dr. Gilbert Tietaah, a senior lecturer at the Department of Communication Studies was the editor of an Elections Communication Guide developed by the MFWA to promote issues-based and decent campaigning ahead of the 2020 elections in Ghana.

The guidelines were part of MFWA’s project on Promoting Decent Language and Issues-based Campaigning for Peaceful Elections in Ghana in 2020, which involved the monitoring of radio stations to name perpetrators of hate speech and other indecent expressions, and the radio stations that allow such expressions on their platforms.

The project was implemented with funding support from STAR-Ghana Foundation and OSIWA.
