The Office of Research Innovation and Development of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and the school’s management will organise a web seminar on the just ended Presidential and Parliamentary election in Ghana which was held last year.
The event which will be held under the theme “Assessing the Media’s Performance during the 2020 General Election in Ghana” has been slated for 9th April 2021 and 12th April 2021.
The event will look at how vital the role of the media has been to the success of the election.
Director of the Office of Research, Innovation and Development at the Institute, Dr Etse Sikanku said the seminar will bring on board resource persons from diverse perspectives to evaluate and scrutinize the role of the media in the just ended 2020 general election.
“The purpose of the event is to offer academics and practitioners the opportunity to reflect on the recently held election to take stock of lessons, challenges, and opportunities to in the future”, he noted.
He added that the main purpose of the event is to create a platform to engage in discussions with the public to bring their views on how the media performed during the 2020 election, something he believes will hopefully, guide future elections regarding media coverage.
