MISA: An Overview

Over the past twenty (20) years, MISA has positioned itself as the primary advocate for media freedom and freedom of expression in southern Africa. MISA programmes have grown and now have a global outreach especially through the media violations monitoring programme. As a result, MISA’s work and agenda have also been taken up by many civic organisations in the region, thereby creating consciousness of the linkages between media freedom, freedom of expression and broader human rights and democratic campaigns.
