Media regulation and self-regulation in the Post-Soviet space

This handbook on media regulation and self-regulation is based on the outcomes of the International Summer School organized in 2009 in Belarus with the support of UNESCO’s Moscow Office. The event targeted media law experts and media educators from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus and the Russian Federation.

The International Summer School brought together leading Russian and Belarusian experts in the field of media law. Its programme included the issues of international standards of freedom of expression, access to information, protection of honour and dignity, author rights in journalism and communication, self-regulation of the media as well as approaches and methods of teaching media law to journalists and media professionals.

Based on the Summer School outcomes, this handbook on teaching the subject of media regulation and self-regulation was distributed among the stakeholders.
