The purpose of this research is to empirically examine the development dynamics of the media industry in Indonesia and how those dynamics characterise the ways in which civil society and citizens’ groups exercise their rights to media. This research aims to portray the landscape of the country’s media industry development and how this has affected citizen participation in the media.

The landscape of the media industry in Indonesia is highly dynamic. As the media will continue to be an inseparable part of human life, so the development of the industry remains vital to society. However, measures need to be taken to ensure that the industry should first serve the interests of society, for we cannot surrender our shared life to the mercy of the profit logic.

This report aim to highlight the trajectory of media policy in Indonesia and to assess its impacts on the different forms of media themselves and on the citizens and their rights, particularly with regards to their media rights. Such rights, in this study, are referred to as the right to access media infrastructure, to access trustworthy information and quality media content, and to participate in the media policy-making process.

In summary, the more one takes a close look at the current mediasphere, the more the importance of media policy becomes obvious. The advancement, and decline of, citizen’s rights to media depends entirely on its disposition. Nevertheless, the public sphere is actually open for active engagement of citizens. At this point, the citizen’s right to media has unfolded itself as a right which cannot be taken for granted, but one which must be fought for.

Laporan Berseri Bermedia, memberdayakan masyarakat di Indonesia melalui kacamata hak warga negara.

CIPG dan HIVOS merancang sebuah program yang bertujuan untuk mengembangkan kredibilitas dan kapasitas (capacity building) kelompok masyarakat sipil di Indonesia dalam melakukan riset kritis secara metodologis; yang juga diharapkan untuk memungkinkan keterlibatan yang lebih efektif dalam kaitannya dengan proses pengambilan keputusan publik maupun penjaminan HAM di Indonesia.

Proses capacity building ini diawali dari coaching process melalui pelatihan Critical Research Methodology (CREAME). Secara keseluruhan, pelatihan CREAME menawarkan materi seputar keterampilan riset kritis, kebijakan dan media, serta HAM dan melibatkan 11 organisasi mitra yang berfokus pada isu seputar HAM, lingkungan hidup, TIK, dan media watch. Sebagai pilot training, CREAME I dihadiri oleh 4 organisasi mitra yaitu AJI Indonesia, ICT Watch, JURnal Celebes, dan Rumah Blogger Indonesia (Bengawan) dan diselenggarakan di Diklat SatuNama, Yogyakarta pada 3-7 Oktober 2011. Sementara itu, CREAME II dihadiri oleh 7 organisasi mitra yaitu Ardhanary Institute, Sloka Institute, Jaringan Radio Komunitas (JRK) NTB, Institut Dayakologi, Yayasan Talenta, AMAN Riau, BaKTI Makassar dan diselenggarakan di Wisma Bumi Asih, Denpasar pada 27 Februari-2 Maret 2012. Sebagian besar peserta CREAME, secara relatif, masih memiliki pengalaman terbatas dalam mengadakan penelitian. Melalui pelatihan ini, kesebelas lembaga yang ada diharapkan dapat meningkatkan kapasitasnya dalam melakukan riset dan nantinya menghasilkan multiplier effect kepada lembaga-lembaga lain dan kepada publik melalui tulisan-tulisan yang kelak mereka hasilkan baik di tingkat lokal maupun nasional.
