Groundviews From Sri Lanka
Recent election results in Sri Lanka have given rise to hopes for more press freedom. In order to assess the situation on the ground, MiCT executive director Klaas Glenewinkel and Sven Recker from the chief editorial staff at MICT travelled to the South Asian island country in February 2015.

In the national capital Colombo they met representatives of media houses, e.g. from the award-winning¬†citizens journalism website Groundviews. In Jaffna, the capital of the Northern Province, they visited a journalism school and the bullet riddled office of the prestgious Uthajan Newspaper for a discussion event on “What is the future of Tamil Media?”
