ACM Launches Self-Regulation Project

ACM Launches Media Self-Regulation Project

October 2, 2014

During the course of October, the ACM will be engaged in a UNESCO-supported project to develop a framework for media self-regulation in the Caribbean. Stakeholder consultations will take place in Guyana, Jamaica, St Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago to explore models and options for media self-regulation and to engage in frank dialogue on media ethics and standards.

In Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago, the ACM will also participate in workshops associated with the work of the media at election time and host separate sessions on charting a way forward on the issue of self-regulation.

The Trinidad and Tobago consultations will take place on October 8 and 9 in partnership with the Trinidad and Tobago Publishers and Broadcasters Association (TTPBA), Media Association of Trinidad and Tobago (MATT) and the Ken Gordon School of Journalism and Communication Studies, COSTATT.
