The Friedrich Ebert Stiftung’s Southern African Media Project and MISA took the initiative to start the African Media Barometer in April 2005, a self assessment exercise done by concerned and informed citizens in each particular country according to a number of general, homegrown criteria. The benchmarks used have to a large extent been lifted from the African Commission for Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) �Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa�, adopted in 2002, and attached to this report as appendix 1. (It was largely inspired by the groundbreaking Windhoek Declaration on Promoting an Independent and Pluralistic African Press [1991] and the African Charter on Broadcasting [2001].)

The ACHPR is the authoritative organ of the African Union mandated to interpret the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights which is binding for all member states.
