Media Advocacy Campaigns for the Algerian CSOs PDF Print

Published: 15 July 2014

Country: Algeria

Algeria_CSO_May_2014A good media advocacy campaign goes beyond outreach work and hosting events. It is about raising awareness and being passionate about an issue you really want to see changed.

This became clear on the first day of the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) workshop held for 17 participants from different NGOs across Algeria. Tackling diverse issues from HIV/AIDS and disability to human rights and drug misuse, the participants are all active in their fields but had not run a ‘traditional’ or online campaign. Therefore, the MDI workshop held 23-27 June 2014 was a good opportunity for CSOs members to practise their media and advocacy skills and to prepare for future campaigns.

Latinos Missing from US media PDF Print

latino_1While the Latino population in the United States has stunningly grown in the last 50 years, their consumer power has increased. Yet, their presence in the media remains weak and could also be said to be decreasing.

BBC Diversity Plan Criticised PDF Print

Published: 4 July 2014

Country: UK

DIVERSITY_BBCThe BBC has recently announced new measures in order to improve the representation of the black, Asian and minority ethnic community. The BBC is ready to dedicate a £2.1m towards the diversity creative talent fund. But that is not enough, claims Lenny Henry, British comedian and a firm advocate for cultural diversity in the creative industry in the UK.

“It [BBC] has the greatest of intentions but with massive respect it is based on an old model that hasn’t worked. Increased training and increased development funds do not deliver change ... but jobs do,” Mr Henry commented. He added that, “Development [funding] is great but there are people absolutely trained and ready to rock”. Henry was criticising in his first reaction to the BBC announcement although he will be part of the independent challenge and advice group, a panel of respected experts, supporting the implementation of the new BBC measures.
