Media, social media – helping the development sector [WP1110]

Social media is bringing about an intense process of change within the development sector and the role played by traditional media. We ask how social media can be embraced to make it work in the development arena. And is there a new role for media?

This is the first of two podcasts recorded during our meeting to discuss Media, social media and democratic governance.
