What is AMIC?

The Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) is an international, non-profit, non-government organization that serves as a regional research hub for media and communication issues. Based in Manila, Philippines, it was established in 1971 to encourage ethical and social responsibility of the media to support democratic access and participation in media development and production. AMIC also works to provide opportunities for empowerment of disadvantaged sectors in the communication/media environments in developing countries in Asia.
