Horn of Africa and Kenya Diaspora Websites as Alternative Media Sources

(p.151) 13 Horn of Africa and Kenya Diaspora Websites as Alternative Media Sources
Media and Identity in Africa

Ann Biersteker

Edinburgh University Press

Internet websites of Horn of Africa and Kenyan diaspora groups (broadly defined to include exile, transnational, emigrant, expatriate and refugee communities) provide alternative media sources to Kenya and Horn of Africa-based media as well as to media of the United States and Europe. These alternatives affect the internet, print and broadcast media, news and opinion media, and arts and entertainment media. The alternatives presented by these websites address specific diasporic and exile communities, transnational diasporic communities, and African and global audiences. They include what is excluded by other media sources; demonstrate creative use of technology; challenge the views presented in other sources; and provide services for, and work to organise and mobilise, diaspora communities.
