Fafo-report 320

Web edition

Local media support (LMS) has established itself as a valuable tool for humanitarian emergency response, conflict resolution and democracy building. Access to relevant information is becoming widely accepted as a vital part of empowering exposed groups in crisis situations, as well as of facilitating societal developments towards peace, democracy and political pluralism. The authors of this report provide a study of LMS in the 1990s and propose a framework for assessment and management of LMS projects.
