Regulation of online broadcasting in Nigeria

My research is based on the increasing popularity of online broadcasting in Nigeria which makes it possible for anyone to own broadcast outifts without going through the established structure of licensing. It considers the concept of formal regulation, self-regulation, media literacy and freedom of expression, and the implication that this mix has for vices such as fake news, disinformation and hate speech in a developing country. Also, it seeks to address where the burden of responsibility should lie between individual, corporate and state actors.
