 Requirements Written Report You are required to write a 5-7 page brief yet coherent country report. In addition to general background information about the country, your report must provide well-informed knowledge about the country’s media and cultural industries, telecommunications, press freedom, human rights, and media regulation and policy.

The length of the report must be 5-7 pages (not including cover page, appendices, and references), and it must be double spaced, typed in a 12-point font, with one-inch margins on all sides. 2. It is of utmost importance that you use the most current information available. The CIA’s database will serve as an excellent starting point.

Depending on the country you represent, you may need more than 5 sources. 4. For the country’s background information and socio-economic/media data, you are allowed to use numbers and bullets.
