Overview

Participatory development and government accountability depend in part on the existence of media that provide broad access to information from varied sources and that equip and encourage people to raise and debate issues and develop public opinion. Conducive policies, law, and regulations are essential for media to develop that are independent and widely accessible and that enable the expression of diverse perspectives and sources of information. 'Broadcasting, Voice, and Accountability' presents a framework to inform analysis of existing policies and support the development of a vigorous media sector, with a particular emphasis on broadcasting. It focuses on broadcasting because that is the medium with the greatest potential to reach and involve society at large, including the most disadvantaged and illiterate segments of society in developing countries. Information on good practices in broadcasting policy is in demand in countries of every region--particularly in countries that are opening their economies, democratizing, and decentralizing public service delivery.

This book provides development practitioners with a wide overview of the key policy and regulatory issues involved in supporting freedom of information and expression and enabling development of a pluralistic, independent, and robust broadcasting sector. Policy, regulation, capacity, and institutional development are important development levers that shape the ownership, content, and social impacts of broadcasting systems. The guide shows the importance of enabling a mix of ownership and uses, commonly classified in terms of commercial, public service, and community broadcasting, that serves the public interest. With the guidance of this book, broadcasting policy and regulation can be tackled as a mainstream development topic, with important consequences for government transparency, government accountability, and enabling disadvantaged constituencies to voice their concerns and press for action.

This book is the World Bank's first publication presenting good practices from around the work in media and broadcasting policy and regulation and complements existing work in governance, public sector reform, and access to information. It is a useful toll for policymakers, reform managers, development practitioners, and students alike.
