Discussion paper: Media and Information Literacy: a human rights-based approach in developing countries

Year of production: 2015

Want to know more about the intersections of human rights and media literacy? This short but sweet discussion paper gives a great (and short!) overview of the importance of media literacy skills in the context of freedom of information and expression in developing countries. The examples drawn from specific projects by the DW Akademie help introduce possible solutions to the problems discussed too, which makes it one of the most digestible ways to contemplate human rights, democracy and media literacy.
