This paper gives an overview of the CommGap Program, which aims to demonstrate the power of communication principles, processes and structures in promoting good and accountable governance, and hence better development results.
CommGAP defines Communication in its broadest sense to include the structures, principles and processes that define a society’s socio-political context, with an emphasis on those institutions within society that influence and shape public opinion, including the media environment, and the legal and regulatory framework that enables or precludes the free flow of information from government to citizens and vice versa.
