Dialogue Session on the Media in Mauritius


The Media and Communication Studies Unit of UOM, in collaboration with the UNESCO, is organising a conference/dialogue session on the theme ‘Enhancing Democratic Systems: The Media in Mauritius’ on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th September.

The objective is to allow key stakeholders to:
– Take stock of the existing battery of legal and regulatory framework with respect to the media in Mauritius.
– Revisit the various debates / exchanges about the changing role of the media in a democracy.
– Examine the relationship between the media and the different institutions such as the government, regulatory bodies and civil society.
– Explore the good practices available in the area of media regulation / self regulation.
– Engage into dialogue with key stakeholders in relation to the above and ensure a way forward for its prompt implementation.
