Radio, Conflict and Land Grabbing
in Sierra Leone: Communicating rights and preventing violence through drama
Valentina Baú

When Wednesday, 23 May, 3:30pm - 5pm
Where Cinema 327, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Sydney

With a framework of entertainment education (edutainment), this presentation offers insights on the effects of radio drama in addressing conflict over land governance in Sierra Leone.Bush Wahala is a radio drama from international NGO Search for Common Ground that promotes popular education to land rights. Through interviews conducted by the author with rural farmers affected by this issue, this work reflects on the role of radio drama in providing listeners with alternatives to the use of violence and confrontation with the authorities in order to claim land rights. It thus contributes to research on edutainment in contexts of conflict, with specific focus on the increasingly complex issue of land grabbing in the developing world.
