Guy-BergerIn a video presentation for the UNESCO Emeritus Dialogue session on development communication, UNESCO’s global Director for Freedom of Expression and Media Development, Guy Berger, has said that AMIC is “one of the most esteemed research partners of UNESCO”.

He talked of “new paradigms in development communication” and said that “since the early behaviourists’ concepts and practices of ‘devcom’, there has been dynamic and, indeed, pluralistic development of paradigms in this field.” Dr. Berger said that “these reflect the changing contexts nationally, internationally and technologically”.

The AMIC conference UNESCO Emeritus Dialogue brought together five international experts to look at whether development communication still has a place in the ‘New Asia’.
