John Davison, head of media at Christian Aid, one of the largest international development NGOs, asks in this Polis blog, Media and Development - Where's the Gap? whether major mainstream NGOs should be playing a major role in media for development - or whether taking on such a role risks accusations of neocolonialism. Davison is undertaking more detailed research around this question with Charlie Beckett as a visiting fellow at Polis, the media thinktank based at the London School of Economics. It's interesting stuff.
