Research briefing: How do debate programmes influence knowledge of key governance issues and political participation?

Abstract

This research briefing explores levels of knowledge of key governance issues and political participation among radio listeners in Sierra Leone. Regression analyses were used to establish associations between listenership and levels of knowledge of key governance issues and political participation. This enabled us to remove other potential competing explanations for the outcomes, such as respondents’ social and demographic characteristics.
