African Media Barometer – Malawi 2010 Report

African Media Barometer – Malawi 2010 Report

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung’s Southern African Media Project took the initiative together with the Media Institute for Southern Africa (MISA) to start the African Media Barometer in April 2005, a self-assessment exercise done by Africans themselves according to home grown criteria. The project is the first in-depth and comprehensive description and measurement system for national media environments on the African continent. The benchmarks are to a large extend taken from the African Commission for Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR)1 “Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa”, adopted in 2002. This declaration was largely inspired by the ground-breaking conferences in Windhoek/Namibia on the “Independence of the Media” (1992) and the “African Charter on Broadcasting” (2001). By the end of 2006, 19 sub-Saharan countries will be covered by the AMB. In 2007 those countries which started the exercise in 2005 were revisited.
