"This study sought to address the gap in empirical research related to newspapers and crisis communication for natural disasters in Uganda. Against this backdrop, the objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of print media factors on the crisis communication for natural disasters in Uganda. Specifically, the study: (i) examined the effectiveness of print media consumption patterns by the affected people on crisis communication for natural disaster in Uganda, (ii) assessed the effectiveness of print media management strategies with key publics on crisis communication for natural disaster in Uganda, (iii) evaluated the effectiveness of print media on communicating the key crisis events of natural disasters in Uganda, (iv) analyzed the effectiveness of print media coverage for past natural disasters on the current crisis communication in Uganda. To achieve these objectives, the study employed both quantitative and qualitative research designs." -From the Author's Abstract
Ocitti, Jim 2000 0-7734-7860-4 468 pages This volume refutes the claim that the present no-party political system in Uganda is more democratic than past systems, and examines the reasons why democracy has failed to take root there.
Ocitti, Jim 2005 0-7734-5926-X 172 pages This book explores, through the lens of history, the dynamics between the press, politics and public policy in Uganda. It illuminates and documents the various tensions and struggles for press freedom in the country since the establishment of the first newspaper in 1900. The book demonstrates that, despite Uganda’s brush with multiple political systems over the decades – multiparty, one-party politics, military rule and no-party political arrangements – the press has always been at the receiving end of the stick. Consequently, journalists, in their yearnings for a legally unrestrictive media-free environment under a liberal socio-political atmosphere, have had to deploy various methods and approaches in dealing with the various state apparatuses.
Okwany, Auma 2012 0-7734-1583-1 176 pages This book examines early childhood development (ECD) in Africa. The authors study the positive and negative cultural practices of ethnic groups in Kenya and Uganda and their influence on ECD. While emphasizing the positive, the authors argue that negative local practices such as female genital mutilation, child marriage, and child labor must be challenged because they may violate human rights and are detrimental to the well-being of children. Significantly, the authors conclude that while the forces of globalization have begun to transform education and have led to cultural dissociation in Africa, positive ECD strategies must strengthen rather than supplant the natural and local realities for children.
