Media Development

The development of professional media and citizen journalism can build more transparent and effective governance, promote fair and open economies, generate responsible public discussion, and provide the information citizens need to improve their lives and communities.

IREX’s work with local partners advances media professionalism, sustainability, sound media laws, and the local institutions that support independent media and journalists. We work across all media - television, radio, online, print, and mobile. Recognizing the shift to interactive and multiplatform media and the role of citizen journalists, IREX works to provide and integrate new technologies that democratize the flow of information.

IREX research in media development, including the Media Sustainability Index, helps inform policymakers, academics, and media practitioners throughout the world as they seek ways to expand citizens’ access to information.
