Abstract

The policy strand of the Centre for Media Research (CMR) seeks to inform and critique contemporary media and information policies from a Northern Ireland perspective. Of late media literacy has received much attention from policy makers both centrally and in the nations and regions in the UK. This is in part stimulated by Section 11 of the Communications Act (2003) which established the Office of Communications (OfCom) and also placed a duty on that office to promote media literacy and to ‘bring about, or to encourage others to bring about, a better public understanding of the nature and characteristics of material published by means of electronic media.’
