In our globalised world, the media is more than just a watchdog. In every society, the media play important roles including creating awareness, disseminating the relevant messages, providing channels of communication and ensuring transparency in this global effort of the UN to achieve its millennium development goals.
Changing Media, Changing Societies: Media and the Millennium Development Goals explores the media's role in the UN's effort. Selected papers from a conference of the same name have been organised and presented in this book under the sections of thematic issues, case studies of the media in various Asian countries and media representations of the various issues.
