Designs for a Democratic Media in Iraq

The Western Policy Center co-sponsors, as part of President Bush's Middle East Partnership Initiative to encourage economic and civil society growth in the region, an international conference on "Designs for a Democratic Media in Iraq," organized by Internews in conjunction with the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, serving as EU President. The conference features dozens of Iraqi, Arab and Western media law experts convening in Athens, Greece to redesign media laws in postwar Iraq and promote media reform, human rights, and liberal democratic institutions in Iraq and the broader Muslim world.
