Freedom of expression and the media
MISA Malawi’s main work centres on promotion of media freedom and freedom of expression to ensure an enabling environment that supports media independence, sustainability, pluralism and diversity of views and opinions.
We monitor and issue alerts on media freedom and freedom of expression violations though our freedom of expression tracker and also undertake research to identify challenges affecting the work of the media.
Media monitoring helps the chapter provide relevant support to journalists, media practitioners and institutions whose rights are violated. The research aspect also enables MISA Malawi to develop a greater understanding of media violations and allows the organization to identify and track emerging issues and trends.
