Policy Watch

The Nepal government approved the new National Mass Communications Policy-2016 on July 22. The meeting of the Council of Ministers approved the Policy -2016.

The final report on the Policy was submitted by the Mass Communications High Level Committee coordinated by Kashiraj Dahal.

It is a positive step that the government brought the new policy on mass communications at a time when the country has ushered in the changed political and constitutional set ups.

However, Freedom Forum, as an organization working in the sector of freedom of expression and media freedom for long, has been studying the Policy whether it has embraced the national legal and constitutional provisions and followed the international standards of freedom of expression and the best practices.

FF, therefore, is to come up with the detailed analysis of the Policy after the study of the policy.
