Our work on Governance and rights

BBC Media Action is using media and communication to provide access to information and create platforms to enable some of the poorest people in the world to take part in community life, and to hold those in power accountable. A focus on programming that directly engages people in debate and discussion also encourages communication across political, ethnic, religious and other divides in society.

We promote and protect high quality journalism and journalists around the world, supporting media institutions and strengthening public service broadcasting. We work with professional and citizen journalists where media freedom and freedom of speech are under threat, raising public awareness of and people's ability to understand their rights.
