The Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA) at the National Endowment for Democracy has published two new reports authored by International Development Consultant Peter Graves on topics related to the field of media assistance:

·         U.S. Public and Private Funding of Independent Media Development Abroad, authored by Graves and edited by Angela Stephens, CIMA senior coordinator, provides a snapshot of U.S. public and private funding of media development assistance across the globe. Drawing upon the results of a 2007 survey designed by Graves and interviews and research, the report estimates that U.S. public and private funding of media development is at least $142 million a year.

·         Independent Media’s Vital Role in Development, also written by Graves, examines the cross-sector impact of media on political, social, and economic systems worldwide. The report provides examples of the benefits provided by independent media in a variety of settings.
