St. Lucia to host ACM stakeholder consultation on media self-regulation


The Media Association of Saint Lucia (MASL) will host Wesley Gibbings of the Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM) and Alison Bethel McKenzie of the International Press Institute (IPI) for a consultation on media self-regulation.

The consultation will take place at Monroe College from 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 25.

The MASL said it is encouraging as many people as possible to come out, as it is a matter that needs our urgent attention.

The ACM is currently engaging in a project to develop a framework for media self-regulation in the Caribbean. The stakeholder consultations will explore models and options for media self-regulation and to engage in frank dialogue on media ethics and standards.

Similar consultations have taken place or will take place in Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana.

A discussion paper researched and written by Gibbings is in circulation for consideration and feedback.

Persons interested in attending can contact Maria Fontenelle for more information and to book a spot on 1-758-461-6155. Space is limited.

This project is being undertaken through the support of UNESCO and ACM partner organisations throughout the ACM network.
