The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) is the primary advocate for media freedom and freedom of expression in southern Africa.
MISA’s work focuses on making sustainable, lasting
changes to the media landscape in the southern Africa
region that will make our countries safer places for journalists to work and more conducive for media freedom
and freedom of expression.
We do this through activities including:
Advocating for changes to restrictive laws
Advocating for development of positive legislation, such
as access to information laws;
Researching and publishing reports on media violations
and the state of the media environment in southern African countries; and
Supporting greater professionalism among journalists by
building capacity through training, workshops, seminars
and other educational platforms and by producing research and information resources.
