A new Situation Report from the Public Media Alliance and partners in the Caribbean has called for a programme of media and information literacy across all levels of the school curriculum, to counter the threat of mis- and disinformation.
The “Situation Report on Media Literacy, Disinformation & Misinformation in the Caribbean”, produced in partnership with the Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM), the Media Institute of the Caribbean (MIC), and UNESCO IPDC, was published today.
It covers eight Caribbean nations – the Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago – and examines each country’s relationship with media and information literacy, disinformation, and trust in news. In each country, research was undertaken over a period of five months. Separately, research was conducted by ACM to determine the feasibility of a regional trusted news network.
