IOG Policy Brief No. 16: Beyond Bylines: Engaging the News Media in Urban Governance
Auteurs: Zachariah Ezekiel
This policy brief examines the media’s role in local governance as experienced in IOG’s South Asia Media and Governance Network Programme. Focusing on the weak ‘consumer culture’ among the urban poor, and poor relations between local media and local government, the paper discusses the challenges and the opportunities of engaging the media in local governance programmes.
