In most democracies, the legal framework for the media has evolved over hundreds of years. To start fresh, as Libya must do, is a daunting prospect. In order to guide those initial discussions, the Media Vision for Libya conference was divided into four session based on the four pillars that are essential to the media: governance, media economy, technological change, and education and training.
Each began with a presentation from an expert in the field, after which the floor was opened up for debate. The discussions were lively at times but, over the course of two days, progress was made toward shaping a vision for Libya’s future media landscape.
