This summit will pay specific attention to the level of access that residents in societies have or are supposed to have in community radio stations, tv and newspapers in their communities.

Access in terms of the prospects that are available to the community to pick diverse and related programs and to have means of feedback to communicate its responses and demands to these production organizations.
