UNESCO has recently published a training manual on civil education as part of its efforts to broaden the capabilities of media professionals in developing countries. The manual, "Civic Education for Media Professionals: A Training Manual," focuses on principles that lie in the heart of UNESCO's mandate.

The objectives of the manual:

  • To raise greater civic consciousness among media professionals about the democratic role of the media in the transitional democracies of the developing world; 
  • To enhance the civic competence of media practitioners to help them in their analysis and reporting of civic affairs; and
  • To encourage greater prioritization of civic news among media institutions.
