African Media, African Children is the title of the tenth Yearbook of the International Clearinghouse on Children, Youth and Media. Over the years, we have focused attention
on a wide range of topics, but this is the first Yearbook with a geographical focus, and a vast continent at that. A focus on Africa seems both timely and important.

When issues about children and media are discussed, all too often the frame of reference is the media culture of the Western world. There is an urgent need for the agenda to become open to non-Western thoughts and intercultural approaches to a much higher degree than is the case at present.
