Despite their enormous contributions to what has been contentiously called a "revolution," scholars and activists have found that in post-Mubarak Egypt, women’s rights have seen a decline (Olimat, 2014; Women’s Status Report 2014).</p> <p><a href="http://www.comminit.com/global/content/against-wall-women-politics-and-graffiti-egypt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.comminit.com/global/content/against-wall-women-politics-and-graffiti-egypt#comments Egypt Blogs: Political Accountability and Participation Community Participation Inclusive Politics MDG 3.

Skill building with young journalists includes training those with a background in print journalism on reporting for radio and recording and editing a "sound-rich" radio feature. "Through face-to-face training and its online iLearn course, BBC Media Action is training Burma’s next - some say, first - generation of broadcast journalists from the private sector."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The topics covered by the radio show are those of concern to young adults, including issues formerly considered taboo in Burma - for example, in the "Society" series: drinking alcohol, foreign influences, relationships, women’s equality, and role models. They are topics identified by Burmese youth journalists and their peers within the country and the Burmese community on the Thai border.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The radio project also aims to get information to ethnic minorities and hard-to-reach communities in order to "inspire listeners to learn about their rights, their role in their community and their country and encourage them to discuss issues online and in weekly listening groups....Working with local partners, LLKS listening groups take place in some of the most remote areas of the country so young people from all backgrounds can listen and discuss the issues raised by the show."</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div

Jordan http://www.comminit.com/global/content/connections-lifeline-communication-syrian-refugees-lebanon-and-jordan <p>"Amid growing recognition that information is as crucial a factor in the humanitarian toolkit as food, water, medicine and shelter, Connections gives Syrian refugees practical advice and guidance on issues such as registering with the UN, accessing vital services and tracing missing family members."</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>In order to focus on refugee needs from the perspective of their experience, film topics for the project, covering health, legal, education and shelter, are chosen in consultation with aid workers and refugees. The content is especially focused on encouraging refugees to find and identify the organisations best placed to help them and to improve refugees’ knowledge of how to help themselves with up-to-date information. For example, films explain that no fees are charged by the United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) and other aid agencies and highlight the dangers of engaging with "brokers", or middle men, who claim to be able to obtain visas or refugees. (View the film below.) "Another series, ‘Assem and Gassem’, produced in 2015 to address tensions between refugee and host communities in Lebanon shows two characters, one Syrian and one Lebanese, working together to overcome everyday problems." As part of the mix of videos, as well as photo-essays, "the programming is based on real testimonies and experiences of refugees, enabling their voices to be heard. It also advises on volunteering and self-help, as well as the importance of education and dealing with stress within the family."&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>As well as choosing topics through consultation, films are produced "by a team of Syrian, Lebanese and Jordanian film-makers, researchers, actors and musicians" - some of whom are themselves among the displaced.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Because television sets and the electricity to power them are not something that all refugee households can access, the project has found ways to show them in places where the refugees need to go, for example, on screens visible by people from lines waiting to renew paper work and access aid services at UNHCR and Relief International refugee registration centres, camps, and community centres, and on buses transporting refugees. "...Information centres run by Relief International in Lebanon - providing access to free wifi and phone charging facilities - also allow people to watch, and download the films to their mobile phones....Films are available to download via a dedicated app."&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development
