David Anderson has taken part in a discussion on Al Jazeera TV (13 December) on the election of Gambian lawyer Fatou Bensouda as the next chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).  Bensouda will become the first African to hold this post.

David was quoted as saying, "The African Union is itself quite a divided house and, although as an organisation it has given support to an African being elected, that doesn't mean to say that all African states will now get their weight behind the court.  I think that's much more problematical."

The full programme can be seen here.

Professor David Anderson is University Lecturer in African Politics

James Painter quoted on how climate change is portrayed on TV news

Posted: 02/10/2014

Television news tends to focus on disasters such as droughts or floods in covering scientific findings about climate change, an approach that may exaggerate pessimism about the subject, according to a new study. The review of coverage by leading television news shows in Australia, Brazil, Britain, China, Germany and India found that they most often framed reports about the science of global warming in terms of crisis.

The report, by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, said disaster scenarios were played up over themes of scientific uncertainty, risks of global warming or opportunities for solving the problems. ‘For television, which is driven by pictures and the need for strong, engaging narratives in a short space of time, disaster-type approaches are going to be very attractive,’ author James Painter told Reuters.
