Training on UNESCO’s Media Development Indicators (MDI) in Thailand: Call for Applications
UNESCO Bangkok is accepting applications for a training on international standards and good practices in media policies for stakeholders in Thailand’s media sector.
The training will be conducted in English from 25-27 January 2016 in Bangkok.
UNESCO’s MDI embrace five major categories: a) legal and regulatory framework; b) plurality and diversity of media; c) media as a platform for democratic discourse; d) professional capacity building; and e) infrastructural capacity. They are available in different languages, including Thai (see MDI publication)
The objectives of the training are to:
- enhance capacities of policy-makers, media professionals and representatives of civil society organizations in international standards and good practices in the field of media development and media policies;
- present UNESCO’s MDI to researchers, journalism school teachers and media development partners in order to encourage research in this field based on a comprehensive framework for assessing the media landscape in Thailand;
- use the MDI as a reference for exploring how international standards and good practices can be incorporated into media policy formulation in Thailand.
