Press freedom in South-East Asia has deteriorated in the past few years and online civic space has been monitored quite extensively. So-called “fake news” have undermined the veracity of news and damaged the trust in the media as a democratic institution. At the same time, there are isolated yet increasingly important signs of resilience in the sector. New and alternative media experiences are emerging, which are capable to survive and even thrive in the current environment.
The Peace and Development Advisor (PDA), located in the Office of the Resident Coordinator, is managing a new UNDP initiative to promote media alternatives and new forms of freedom of expression in Cambodia. The media specialist will work in the Resident Coordinator’s Office under the supervision of the PDA.
