This Handbook is part of an attempt to enhance the quality of media reportage of elections in the English-speaking Caribbean. It has been designed by journalists for journalists.
It is the work of the Association of Caribbean MediaWorkers (ACM) – a network of journalists spanning the Caribbean Basin, established in 2001 and currently headquartered in Trinidad and Tobago.
This effort recognises the ineluctable connection between democracy and the quality of journalism – a conclusion recorded by the 2005 Report of the Commission on the Media and Democracy in Central America and reflected in similar exercises in professional introspection in other parts of the world.
