Building New Media Institutions in the MENA Region: A Roadmap towards Media Law and Policy Reform was the first in a multi-part series of workshops aimed at bringing together key stakeholders from the academic, law and policy and civil society communities interested in participating in a dialogue intended to aid the media transitions in the Middle East and North Africa. The workshop was organized by the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, with support from Internews Network.

This synthesis report draws both from meeting discussions and draft reports submitted and presented at the meeting: Dr. Joan Barata, Draft Report on the Political Transition in Tunisia from the Point of View of Regulation of Communication Media (June 2011); Toby Mendel, Draft Report on Freedom of Expression in Egypt: Opportunities for Reform (June 2011); and Draft Report on the Internet Policy Framework in Egypt (June 2011).
