Martin Scott: Does Media Matter for International Development?

‘Does Media Matter for International Development?’ is a rhetorical question. From encouraging charitable donations and delivering public health messages to promoting democratic participation and state accountability; the media can play a crucial role in development.

How should we respond to the growing importance of the media - including journalism, radio, television, community media and social media - for poverty and inequality? The first step is to acquire an informed and critical understanding of the multiple roles that the media can have in development.

The book is available from 8 May 2014 at Amazon.
