Is there a relationship between a free and independent media and the development of a democratic society? What impact does political change have on the media and how do changing media structures influence political reform?
Media Reform examines a complex process: the reform of media and its role promoting democratic practices. Using examples of media from a range of countries in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa including Uruguay, Poland, China, Indonesia, Jordan and Uganda, Media Reform considers the social and cultural implications of a free and independent media. Each case-study provides a background to political transition and reform and addresses the processes of media liberalisation, the growth of civil society, new technology developments as they have affected the media sector and the different trends found in broadcast media and print media.
