Question for Department for Culture, Media and Sport

UIN HL2359, tabled on 23 October 2014

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the effectiveness of BBC Media Action’s work in Asia; whether they consider it has increased government accountability and enabled access to information there; how that work fits in with their Governance and Rights project; and why the Korean Peninsula is excluded from that approach.

While there have not been assessments carried out specifically on work in Asia, the Department for Internal Developmentā€™s Global Grant to BBC Media Action has been assessed in 2012 and 2013. Both reviews assessed BBC Media Action to be exceeding expectations.
