Governance and media : use of radio in disseminating information on participatory governance in Mysore district.

Publication year: 

Report of an action research project that aimed to disseminate information on Panchayat Raj Institutions (or structures and institutions of local governance) to the rural population through the radio in Mysore, India. The authors point out that though the state of Karnataka is involved in decentralisation with statutes in place and processes to facilitate local participation in governance, there are still formidable barriers. The report gives an account of the project, assesses its impact and outlines some useful strategies for those interested in using communication creatively to promote grassroots participation in governance.
