Blog: Afghanistan: draft media law slowed, but not stopped

17 Jul

For now, the Afghan government’s apparent attempt at
railroading through a less-than-media-friendly new Mass Media Law without
consultation seems to have been sidelined, though not derailed. On Sunday in
Kabul, representatives of the Ministry of Information and Culture received
recommendations
from civil society workers and journalists, including some
from the provinces, which were drawn up at a June 27 meeting organized by Internews‘s Nai
Media Institute in Afghanistan
