Diaspora Journalism and Conflicts in Transnational Media Circuits
This chapter explores the interconnections between the contemporary global phenomena of conflict, global migration and diasporic formations through an assessment of the journalistic capacity of diaspora persons or groups to circulate ideas, values and ideology in both the regular and emerging forms of news and information provisions that can have tangible outcomes in conflict situations. The chapter aims to enunciate the concept of diaspora journalism as an emergent type of journalism that takes different forms and structures in its interventions on a broad range of issues that serve as a conduit linking homeland and host countries and constituencies in the modern global society. The chapter also points at the ways in which diaspora journalism’s roles in conflicts can be productively assessed and better understood.
