Tradomodern Media Imperatives for Checking Modern Slavery in Africa: A Critical Appraisal

C Nwabueze, C Ugwonno

Abstract


Slavery exists in modern forms in the contemporary society. Such activities as human trafficking for prostitution or forced labour are rampant in the society today. Communication is crucial to the creation of awareness against any form of vice in the society, including modern slavery. This paper examines the critical role of trado-modern communication media in achieving communication objectives targeted at modern slavery in contemporary society. It adopts the analytical approach in discussing how the interface between traditional and modern communication channels could be harnessed to check the alarming trend of modern slavery in contemporary society. It recommends among others, that change agents and anti-slavery crusaders should acquaint themselves with the workings/operations of the trado-modern media with a view of successfully adopting this multi-media approach in achieving set objectives.
