The media in the Caribbean region have been pivotal in breaking the silence around violence and abuse of children. Greater awareness of child rights deprivations and violations in this region is in part due to increased media focus on these issues.
This guide for journalists and broadcasters will help build the capacity of the media executives and professionals in traditional and new media institutions to institute and implement policies governing reporting on children’s issues.
It is the product of a collaboration involving the ACM, CBU and UNICEF with assistance from many institutions and individuals with an interest in improved media practice in this important area. Feel free to download and to share.
