Mission Statement
MISA is a dynamic, member driven regional organization with national chapters coordinated by a professional regional secretariat which
seeks – through monitoring, training, capacity building, research and the distribution of information- to foster free, independent and diverse
media throughout southern Africa in the service of democracy and development as stated in the Windhoek Declaration and the African
Charter on Broadcasting.

Vision Statement
MISA’s vision is of a southern African region in which the media enjoys freedom of expression, independent from political, economic and
commercial interests, pluralism of views and opinions. Our vision is of a region where members of society, individually or collectively are free
to express themselves through any media of their choice without hindrance of any kind. A region too, where access to information must be
unhindered and where information is readily available.

The MISA vision is:

A media that is free, independent, diverse and pluralistic
Access to the media and information by all sectors of society
Media workers who are competent, critical, accountable, sensitive to gender issues and are aware of their responsibility to society
Legislation, regulations and policy environments that support media independence, diversity and pluralism
Citizens in the SADC region that are empowered to claim information as a basic right.
