> *Background*
>
> I am currently Head of the Government's Communication and Information

> Here is an outline of my propose area. The background is that the current
> ANC leadership is increasingly talking about media tribunals and I would
> like to show that they are not feasible in democracies. I according have
> decided to study the IBSA countries (India, Brazil and SA). They are all
> democracies and could become of the proposed G13 (G8 expanded).
>
> Here is an outline of the topics I would like to look at:
>
> - The relationship between Government and the media within developing
> nations;
>
> - Which legislation is in place to "control" the media?
>
> - How Government communicates to the populace through the media;
>
> - How Government deals with negative publicity;
>
> - Are their divergent views in the media (electronic/print)
>
> - Does Government own/subsidise media?
>
> - How has developmental media evolve?
>
> - Ultimately how does Government deal with criticism from the media?
>
> - Censorship/media tribunals?
>
> I would like to know whether you have any information relating to these
> countries and any references to media tribunals within the Commonwealth.
