Ethnic media study

This publication looks into media habits of ethnic minorities in select states in Myanmar and the challenges people face in accessing information.

This publication examines content produced and distributed to ethnic minorities in Mon, Kayin and Kayah states in Myanmar and looks into the news and media habits and understandings of the same groups. It consists of two different research efforts: a content analysis and a qualitative audience study.

The report ends with a number of recommendations directed at both the Myanmar media industry, journalists and other content producers and at media development organisations and learning institutions. IMS-Fojo hopes that these recommendations can serve as inspiration for the continuous development and professionalisation of the media in Myanmar, particularly in areas with a high concentration of ethnic minorities.
