Session 2: Youth Cafe on Rights, Governance and Youth Empowerment in Kenya – The Role of Media
9 February 2018

There has been much criticism of the media abdicating its watchdog role with regard to supporting governance and accountability in Kenya. In this video, panellists and audience members discuss whether the media is playing its role well if there are gaps, why they exist, and how these can be plugged.

They also go into if, and how the media has played an effective role in advancing youth issues in the country’s development agenda, and how the Kenya media uses evidence (research and routine data) to support the youth development agenda (including keeping leaders accountable to the promises they’ve made to address youth issues).
