publication "But where are our moral heroes?": an analysis of South African press reporting on children affected by HIV/AIDS
Messages conveyed both explicitly and implicitly in the media play an important role in the shaping of public understanding of issues, as well as associated policy, programme and popular responses to these issues. This paper applies discourse analysis to a series of articles on children affected by HIV/AIDS published in 2002/2003 in the English-medium South African press. The paper argues that in each instance, the particular moralism is questionable in the light of both empirical evidence and principles of human dignity underlying the South African constitution.

This guidance has been produced in response to public concern about the safety of children using interactive communication services, such as the Internet.

publication Children in Abject Poverty in Uganda
Education for All of the world’s children is a global priority. The reality, however, is that millions of the world’s poorest children will be denied their chance at education unless there are special interventions that target their development. Since such children do not form a special social category in poverty eradication intervention programmes, their inclusion in EFA efforts tends to be a hit-or-miss phenomenon. This publication looks specifically at poor children both in and out of school who live in Uganda.
