What We Do

The three sections of our work, Election Observation, Capacity Building and Campaign & Advocacy are different parts of ANFREL’s holistic approach to the promotion of democratic institutions. These divisions, while different, support one another.

Media Reporting of Elections in Asia: Issues, Challenges and Lessons

“Media Reporting of Elections in Asia: Issues, Challenges and Lessons” gathers the experience of journalists in Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka.

The book identifies the issues and challenges that the media encounter in the course of their reporting of the elections as well as the lessons and possible best practices in navigating pitfalls and roadblocks in the media’s coverage of elections.

ANFREL hopes the book will provide the media and civil society groups helpful insights on the issues and challenges the media encounter during elections as well as points of improvement and intervention for future media development programs.
