IFJ’s annual report notes a growing trend of anti-media attitudes held by ordinary citizens throughout the region. These are people who the report says are frightened by insecurity and sceptical about the promise of positive change. They feel let down or marginalised by transitional processes because they are not seeing a rapid return for their investment in democratic change, and they blame the messenger – the media – for all of the forces opposing that transition, and whose agendas are most visible in the media.

IFJ concludes that journalists, their unions and professional associations must stand together in a regional alliance that is committed to defending and upholding press freedom, so that the ordinary people recognise and feel the benefits of those hard- won freedoms. In addition, I would encourage all of you, and your colleagues throughout South Asia, to renew your efforts to ensure the participation of people in their societies. This is a two-way process: on one hand, taking steps to see that the news get to all people – including those in urban and rural areas, and in a variety of languages and suitable formats that they can understand – and on the other hand, facilitating the communication of those people’s voices to decision-makers.
