Capacity Building Of Media Professionals In Electoral Coverage In Post-Conflicy Nepal
PDF File Size: 104 KB | Download   
The mass movement of April 2006 that led King Gyanandra to give up absolute power and to reopen the Parliament, as well as the peace-agreement reached in November 2006 by the Government with the Maoists rebels to held multiparty elections, have ended a decade of civil war and paved the way towards reconciliation and democracy in Nepal. As settled by the Interim Constitution, the transition period will culminate with a Constituent assembly election, tentatively scheduled for June 2007.
While media-availability differs across this Himalayan country, considering its challenging topography, Nepal has a variegated media sector characterized by a recent but dynamic community radio movement in the provinces, while print press and television is mostly present in the Kathmandu Valley. Restrictions on press freedom introduced during King Gyanendra’s direct-rule have been lifted. The state-owned broadcaster is the one with the largest coverage and it has embarked in reforms towards its transformation into a PSB.
In Nepal, like in any other transition country, independent and professional media will contribute to make the upcoming election free and fair. But most media professionals, particularly in the districts and remote and rural areas, lack understating of the electoral process, fundamental rights and duties of citizens. It is therefore a great need to urgently enhance the skills of media practitioners in Nepal in view of the upcoming elections.
This project aims to build capacity of the media practitioners in understanding and learning the techniques to cover political parties and candidates, the major issues around the election as well as the electoral process. The project activities will develop skills and enable the media practitioners and media houses to contribute to the transitional democratic process by providing fair, accurate, and balanced election coverage.
