Media discusses self-regulation today!
The Media Association of Saint Lucia will today host Wesley Gibbings of the Association of Caribbean Media Workers, and Bethel McKenzie of the International Press Institute for a consultation on media self-regulation.
The venue is Monroe College and the meeting is scheduled to get underway at 9:00.
Said MASL president Clinton Reynolds: “It is our hope that local media personnel will turn out in large numbers, since the matter to be discussed demands urgent attention.”
The ACM is engaging in a project to develop a framework for media self-regulation in the Caribbean. The stakeholder consultations will explore models and options and engage in frank dialogue on media ethics and standards. Similar consultations have been held in Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana.
The project has been undertaken through the support of UNESCO and ACM partner organizations throughout the ACM network.
