The Media Reform Lanka Initiative Website Launch

The Media Reform Lanka Initiative, based at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, has launched its website

The Initiative aims to broaden and inform the perspectives in which media law, media policy and regulation are debated and determined in Sri Lanka and the wider South Asian region. It is led by Colombo-based senior legal advocate and media columnist Kishali Pinto-Jayawardena, in association with Dr David Page and Dr William Crawley, Senior Fellows at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies and Co-Directors of the Media South Asia Project. Their work to date has generated two core papers on Media Freedom and Social Responsibility in Sri Lanka: A Review of the Legal, Institutional and Educational Framework Relating to the Print Media (co-authored by Kishali Pinto-Jayawardena & Gehan Gunetilleke) and on the Political Economy of the Electronic Media (co-authored by the late Tilak Jayaratne and Sarath Kellapotha).
