Strategies for Media Reform

The Open Society Media Program, which in January 2014 was renamed Program on Independent Journalism (PIJ), seeks to promote independent and viable media and professional, quality journalism in countries undergoing a process of democratization, and to help build functioning media markets. The Program’s primary objective is to strengthen indigenous institutions by providing financial support, fostering exchanges of expertise among countries and regions, helping establish international contacts, and sometimes advocating on behalf of local media institutions. A major part of the program’s work is research and advocacy. The program’s main goal in this area is improved media policy and legislation to create an environment enabling journalists to carry out their work independently. The program’s strategic approach to fulfill this goal is a combination of local and global expertise, knowledge and engagement. In projects run in-house, the program hires local experts from a variety of fields and professions to write policy reports, usually based on a common methodology that includes templates for policy recommendations. It then supports local civil society groups with experience in the policy-making process to foster dialog with parliaments, governments, regulators, and other decision-making bodies and convince them to adopt the policy recommendations spawned by the research
