TV plays an important role in introducing ideas in societies where literacy is relatively low and social norms discourage novel ideas, especially related to stigmatized behaviors.
Victor’s doctoral thesis studies the effectiveness of entertainment-education, the use of mass media with development objectives, in reducing risky sexual behaviors among young worldwide (meta-analysis) and in Nigeria (exploiting data from an experimental evaluation).
