Welcome to EACA

The East African Communication Association (EACA) was established in 2011. It serves as a platform for media and communication researchers, scholars, academicians, policy makers, regulators and media practitioners (journalists and editors) in the East African Community (EAC) and beyond, to share research findings in these fields and to chart ways of improving the field and the industry. The aim of this forum is to advance the study, research and publication of knowledge in the communications and journalism fields initially in Kenya but later it was extended to embrace professionals and practitioners in the whole East African region. It currently covers the countries of Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia, and South Sudan.

It is managed by an Executive Board headed by the president, vice-president, secretary-general, and treasurer.
