This UNITWIN is linked to the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG) Framework and Plan of Action, which has three key objectives:
- pursing gender equality in media systems, structures and content by strengthening international, regional and national cooperation in which all stakeholders work together to drive change globally;
- build on and systematically monitor implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for action” ‘Women and the Media Diagnosis’, and its strategic objectives
- develop and sustain gender and media priorites within a broader donor, government and development agency funding framework.
The scholarly agenda for the Global Alliance on Media and Gender has four main sections:
- Violence of gender, media and information
- Women’s access to media
- Gender media policy and strategies
- Gender, education and media information literacy.
The International Steering Committee (ISC) of GAMAG has six subcommittees, including one on research and this network is at the core of that subcommittee. The Chair of the GAMAG Research Committee is Aimée Vega Montiel, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico.
