Description:     

The report deals with stereotypical (mostly negative) perceptions of the developing world; different perceptions associated with different parts of the developing world; the underlying complexities surrounding popular perceptions of the developing world; and possible roles for the African diaspora in countering perceptions related to Africa.
The aim of this research is to give some understanding to the complexities that surround the generation of development-related media images, and to offer practical ideas for enabling the African diaspora to play a significant role in providing alternative perspectives of Africa.
