Media Sustainability Index (MSI)

Media Sustainability Index (MSI)

Media Sustainability Index (MSI)

IREX's Media Sustainability Index (MSI) provides in-depth analyses of the conditions for independent media in 80 countries across the world.

Since the Europe and Eurasia MSI was first conceived in 2000, in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the MSI has evolved into an important benchmark study to assess how media systems change over time and across borders. IREX added a study for the Middle East and North Africa in 2005, and in 2007 launched the Africa MSI.

We are uploading the MSI's PDFs to this page. If you need a PDF that is not yet available online, please send an e-mail to msi@irex.org.
