Media has the ability to enable greater participation in public life, hold the powerful to account, and can serve as platforms for dialogue and the protection of individual rights. But if media is to fulfil its potential role effectively, updated regulatory frameworks need to be in place and adapted to the new media landscape.
Across the globe, recent political, technological and economic changes have placed increased restraints on media freedom while at the same time, the prevalence of “fake news” is on the rise. As a result, there is an urgent need to find new ways to reform media policy and regulate the sector. Civil society and citizens around the world are demanding trustworthy news and accurate reporting, providing them with the information needed to take informed decisions, a prerequisite for a functioning democracy. Regulation, self-regulation and co-regulation of media are a means to that end.
