Media and Governance

In fast-changing media and communication environments more people are connected than ever before. While most acknowledge that the influence and impact of changing media and communication on governance outcomes is growing, the degree to which new media landscapes are contributing to more informed, peaceful and accountable societies remains in question.  For some, increasingly networked young, educated and information-empowered global citizens have the potential to be democratically, socially and economically transformative.  For others, increasingly fragmented and co-opted media and communication environments are driving political polarisation, extremism and violence.
