One of the highlights of the pre-summit events of the Asia Media Summit 2014 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is the launch of the AIBD/FES publication “Media Ethics in the Age of Social Media” during the opening of the pre-summit workshop on the same theme on 5 May 2014.

This publication is intended to serve as a guide to deal with some of the challenges faced by broadcasters and media professionals to respond to situations that involves ethical dilemmas in their journalistic careers. It presents different models of media regulation and gives examples of journalistic codes of ethics from around the world. In doing so, the publication puts the debate about media ethics in a broader context and has added a new dimension to media ethics.

The AIBD publication is authored by Dr Venkat Iyer, a barrister and legal academic based in the United Kingdom, and supported by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES).

For broadcast training institutions to be attuned and responsive to the demands of new media and social media, they need to form task forces that will facilitate exchange of trainers and experts, offer a more modularized and interactive type of training curriculum relevant to broadcasters’ needs and establish a web-based management protocol or a ‘brokerage’ of sort that facilitates generation of training data and regional exchanges and collaboration.

Southeast Asian countries have become the new growth region heralding rapid socio-economic progress and advancement. Indonesia is no exception, fast-growing and becoming a stronger regional and global player. Broadcasting organisations will need to adopt new initiatives and develop leadership styles to ride these waves of change and deliver programmes and information to the viewers and listeners in line with the ever-changing needs and aspirations of a new type of audience that is more educated, informed not to mention demanding.
