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.
