With attacks on the media growing this report this report considers:
- How much money do the world’s official aid donors—the bilateral and multilateral funders like USAID and the World Bank—give to help independent and public-service-oriented media build free and open societies globally?
- Is financial support to media development increasing, falling, or holding steady?
- What kinds of approaches and issues are being favored by the governments, multilateral agencies, and private donors that provide assistance to media development?
- Which countries and regions receive the most support?
The analysis presented in the report is meant to inform current debates on how international assistance can support an effective response to the new and evolving threats to freedom of the press.
