Centre For Media And Society

The Centre for Media and Society is an independent, non-governmental organization based in Nigeria. The institute was established in April 2000. In establishing the organization, we considered and were convinced of such issues as:

  • The inter-relationship between the well-being of a society and its media as well as between the state of the media and the responsiveness and growth of societal institutions.
  • The institutionalization of democracy and development in Nigeria being nourished by a free and pluralistic media structure, culture, and environment.

We designed a three-fold mandate:

  • Building the capacity of the media to become a more informed, innovative, and competitive institution, well-positioned as a central player in today’s knowledge societies and economies, and able to provide appropriate interface for civil society and governance institutions.
  • Upskilling the institutions of civil society and governance for appropriate engagement of the media and utilization of other communication resources.
  • Advocating communication rights and the expansion of media/communication resources to all sections of the population.

Our Mission

“To help build and improve the communication capacity and environment of the media, civil society, and governance institutions to facilitate popular participation in democracy and development in Nigeria”.

Our Vision

“To be part of the Nigerian governance and development process in which communication capacity-building is a prime component”.
