International Steering Committee (ISC)

The International Steering Committee (ISC) of GAMAG reflects regional, linguistic and generational diversity, and includes representatives of key stakeholder sectors such as media professionals and their unions, media organizations, governments, civil society organizations, international agencies and youth representatives.

The ISC recently met for the first meeting in Geneva (4-5 November 2014). The key outcomes of the meeting include reaching an agreement on provisions that GAMAG wants included in the Sustainable Development Goals and on priority actions of GAMAG, and issuing a press release.
