About this book

The Media Freedom Analyzer developed by Laura Schneider is a new way to measure global media freedom in a more objective, unbiased and transparent way. Grounded in the opinions of around 1000 experts from 126 countries, the index is the first empirically validated tool to assess free and independent media across the world. The existing press freedom rankings are frequently criticized for being arbitrary and having a Western bias. This book tackles this very problem. In times of widespread populism, disinformation and mistrust in the media, it is vitally important to have an assessment tool that is accepted across cultures.

About the authors

Dr. Laura Schneider is Head of Research and Evaluation at Deutsche Welle Akademie, Germany’s leading institution for international media development. Her work focuses on the viability of media across the world and the significance of freedom of expression for sustainable development.
