Régulation des médias d'Afrique francophone : cas du Burkina Faso

Abstract : Large flows stemming from the liberalization of the media sector arose questions related to the mastery of information processing by men among whom a large majority didn’t have any knowledge of journalism. Besides, the requirements of public services and a fair distribution of broadcasting systems constituted a major concern for public policies in connection with communication. This context has brought about a new paradigm that has urged the inclusion of media regulation in the reformulation of the media policies. The regulation process which is applied in the media sector should not only protect and guarantee the appropriate operation of the system but also ensure, in case of need, a fair distribution of its action scope. Regulations systems in Africa are confronted with new challenges which they face desperately. For instance, we can cite the rapid surge of information and communication technology (ICT). It is occurring in terms of managing information flows conveyed by line media and tackling the issue of turning the process into land digital television. In the field of information and communication sciences, it is important to understand the relevance of the media regulation and conduct an analysis of its means and scope. Therefore, our main question could be raised as follows: To what extent can media regulation constitute a means to consolidate democracy? This question seems to be relevant to us when one notice conflicts of interest arising between actors of the public debate whether they belong to the public power or they are registered in political movements or in civil society. With regard to this situation, we can assume that media regulation can be considered as a proper tool for the consolidation of democracy. Owing to the fact that the regulation mode depends on the context of each country, our research scope is limited within Burkina Faso.
