Africa’s Voices- Citizen participation, Radio and Mobile phones

Africa’s Voices is a twelve-month pilot project ran by the Centre of Governance and Human Rights at Cambridge University. Building upon the existing enthusiasm for interactive radio, Africa’s Voices gathers citizens’ opinion on governance and development issues, challenging the dominant voices of political elites and foreign actors.
A ground tested collaborative platform sustained by local radio stations, Africa’s Voices aims to inform African leaders, NGOs and the wider policy and research communities, strengthening citizen participation in public affairs across the continent.
