Advocacy

Through its advocacy programme, AMDISS seeks to build awareness on respect for freedom of expression, human rights, justice and the rule of law in each county of every state across South Sudan. Media laws, in particular, must comply with international human rights standards and internationally recognized in a democratic frameworks. AMDISS has embarked on an intensive advocacy effort with all key players in government and civil society organizations, the result of which was the drafted media bills (three media bills) that was passed by the councils of ministers and was approved by the South Sudan Legislative Assembly. AMDISS therefore took on the task of raising awareness about their content and monitored their implementation.
