The MacBride Report

By UNESCO - 1980

The MacBride Report is the popular name for 'Many Voices, One World: Towards a new more just and more efficient world information and communication order', commissioned by UNESCO. The International Commission for the Study of Communication Problems, under the presidency of Seán MacBride, began its work in December 1977 and comprised fifteen other members. Its almost impossible mandate was 'to study the totality of communication problems in modern societies.' In 1980 UNESCO published the Commission's report which, in its introduction, set out the goals of a New World Information and Communication Order: 'more justice, more equity, more reciprocity in information exchange, less dependence in communication flows, less downwards diffusion of messages, more self reliance and cultural identity, more benefits for all mankind.'

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
