BBC Media Action's latest report, Fragile States: the role of media and communication, concludes that media increasingly matter in fragile states and that the transformation of media and communication environments poses not only challenges - but also opportunities - for policy makers concerned with conflict and post-conflict settings. Join the Center for International Media Assistance and BBC Media Action for a discussion about the challenges and opportunities for media development in fragile states using Iraq, Afghanistan, Kenya, and Somalia as case studies.
