Tajikistan - Various views into the society

"Internews Tajikistan is a non-profit organization that uses global
communications to enhance tolerance and understanding. The NGO supports
independent media, produces and distributes innovative television and radio
programming and Internet content, and uses the media to reduce conflict
within and between countries."

" Legal rights for both broadcasters and individual journalists in
Tajikistan remain tenuous. Internews Tajikistan maintains a staff lawyer
who tracks changes in legislation and practice in all aspects of media law.
Internet advocacy issues currently rank high on the agenda. Our lawyer also
provides consultation to stations on registration, licensing, libel,
freedom of information, and other issues related to the media's ability to
function freely." (Link to site)
