Focused Assessment of Media Development in Libya

In Libya, with a view to the current state of media development, UNESCO has chosen to conduct a baseline study of Outcome 4 ‘Professional capacity building and supporting institutions’ and indicators 3.13 and 3.14 of Outcome 3 “Media as a Platform for Democratic Discourse” as these two outcomes overlap with the priority areas agreed upon by most stakeholders working in the sector. At a time when Libyan media professionals are working under increasing political uncertainty and increasing threats, it is more relevant than ever to assess their general working conditions in terms of safety and security.
