Media Law Handbook for Southern Africa

Volume 1

For over a decade, KAS Media Africa has been focusing on the regulatory framework for journalists in Africa. Volume 1 of the Media Law Handbook for Southern Africa is an important milestone in this on-going work. It is a practical guide for journalists practising in Botswana, Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia. The handbook not only contains a comprehensive overview of applicable media laws for each country reviewed, it also contains suggestions on possible law reforms to improve the protection of media in these countries.
