Giving Sudanese-Australians a voice in the media

The Australian Human Rights Commission has highlighted the discrimination experienced by African-Australians in contemporary Australia - through media representations, and the adverse effects of such discrimination.

A critical challenge for any society is the search for social justice, a core dimension of which concerns the promotion of belonging, a sense of feeling a part of society.

An innovative research based journalism training initiative for Sudanese-Australians has been developed to seek to promote social inclusion and belonging through mobilising the communicative power of the media.
