    Natasha Kimani - Research and Media Program Lead Africa No Filter

    Natasha Kimani - Research and Media Program Lead Africa No Filter

    The latest report by Africa No Filter investigates news and content about business in Africa and the impact of perceptions about Africa as a business and investment destination. It also identifies information and news gaps that offer alternative framing for business in Africa. The report shows another ‘scramble for Africa’ by foreign powers is underway in international media and that keywords, stories, frames, and narratives associated with business on the continent are dangerously distorted. There is an overemphasis on the role of governments, foreign powers, and larger African states alongside an under appreciation of the role of young people, women, entrepreneurs, creative businesses, smaller successful African states, and Africa’s future potential. https://africanofilter.org/the-business-in-africa-narrative-report
