Maps the devolution of responsibility for media standards during the 1990s, and assess its implications on policy and social governance. Examines how policy can be used to integrate public and community values into the media, to determine how organizations like MediaWatch can address gender and other human rights issues in this post-modern media arena of globalization, conglomeration and self-regulation, and to configure a new regulatory model of co-regulation that is open, transparent and accessible to the public. Calls for current regulation to transform into models of co-regulation with industry, government, and the public and civil society organizations all playing a role.
