On the spotlight: Sara Creta

In the fifth and final episode of our podcast series, podcast host Pat O’Mahony hears Jolt researcher Sara Creta talking about the use of digital media by communities living in exile to advance transitional justice (an approach to systematic or massive violations of human rights).

Sara spends time with communities that are organising movement and activism and she analyses social media host pages and activities, conducting both observation with activists but also interviews with the leaders.

The researcher looks at people living outside of countries that are undemocratic or in conflict, or where there is a dictatorship in place, and she looks at the role that exiled communities can play to reshape that. 

Sara has been covering this for many years and she is both frustrated by the fact the journalists were perpetrating the same narrative over and over again and at the same time she saw how this affected the community as well.
