PDF File Size: 179 KB | Download   
Nepali journalists join the worldwide celebration of World Press Freedom Day, observed yearly on 3May, with a seminar of media professionals on “21st Century Media:New Frontiers, New Barriers”.In 2011, the focus of the celebration is on the potential of the Internet and digital platforms to contribute to freedom of expression, democratic governance, and sustainable development.“The arrival of the digital revolution - the Internet, the emergence of new forms of media, and the rise of online social networks - has started to shape the media landscape in Nepal. This development has a great potential to expand the ability of people in the country to enjoy their rights to freely seek, receive and impart information”, says Robert Piper,UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nepal.But in Nepal, public access to media, traditional or online, remains far from universal.Print media, TV and the Internet are mostly within reach of the urban population only.
