Community Media Policy

Governments and international institutions are increasingly recognizing community media as the 'third sector' of broadcasting, next to commercial and public service media. This emerging section of the database is a space to collect information on actors, policy documents and resources that advance or observe this process. It is managed by Jocelyn Harrington (McGill University) and Arne Hintz (Cardiff University).
