Burma's transition to greater democracy is proving a test case for communication rights in practice. If the government is serious about reconciling its different peoples and allowing them a voice in policy-making, it will have to grant them open access to media platforms that enable them to express their opinions and to raise issues of public concern.
Media Development publishes informed and critical opinions on a broad range of topics; relevant documents and materials; reports of events and conferences; a section on cinema; occasional book reviews.
Media Development seeks to keep abreast of developments in the field of mass, community and digital media and to articulate common concerns in the search for equality, justice and human dignity in communication.
