This toolkit aims to provide useful insights and tips on how best to use the media. It is meant to be especially useful for organisations working through issues relating to the mass media, and for those who provide interviews to the media.

'MediaRelate: Understanding Media Images of Love, Sex and Relationships'
Media Relate is a practical media and sex education project that has resulted in the publication of a set of teaching materials, including a booklet, a DVD and a website. The project emerges from our earlier research in this field, which demonstrated young people's enthusiasm for learning about personal and sexual issues from the media rather than from parents or school. (See the report, 'Children, Media and Personal Relationships' (www.mediarelate.org), and book, 'Young People, Sex and the Media: the facts of life?', by David Buckingham and Sara Bragg (2004, Palgrave Macmillan)).

Periodistas hablan: Violencia mediática contra la niñez
2005 - Un estudio sucinto y expedito

El Centro Nicaragüense de Derecho Humanos, CENIDH, con el respaldo de Save the Children Noruega, presenta la investigación “Periodistas hablan de la violencia mediática contra la niñez”. El propósito de esta investigación es contribuir a la sensibilización del periodismo nacional, de las organizaciones civiles y de las instancias gubernamentales a las que incumbe el tema. Pretende también documentar la relación entre los medios de comunicación y la violencia que sufren niñas, niños y adolescentes, y aportar al debate que tiene lugar en el país en torno a la violencia que se genera desde los medios de comunicación, particularmente desde algunos canales de televisión, mediante el género periodístico que se denomina “nota roja”.

"Print Media Coverage on Child Sexual Abuse and Children's Perception" is an attempt of the Hatmalo Sanchar to bring a very sensitive issue directly affecting children to the limelight. The concept to carry out study on child sexual abuse in relation to media coverage is developed in reference to the second report of "Print media coverage on children issue: A report 2003". The study was conducted to see media coverage on the basis of four categories of child rights i.e., rights to survival, development, protection and participation. The findings of the report show that the media has given third priority while publishing issues of child sexual abuse under the category of child rights to Protection.
Since child sexual abuse is a very sensitive and concerned issue, it should be dealt with apt seriousness, especially by media. In such backdrop, Hatemalo felt the need to study print
media coverage on child sexual abuse particularly rape cases, along with children's perception on the published news.
The report has been prepared with the account of randomly chosen documented 105 news/articles from eight daily newspapers of the year 2003 to understand the pattern of print
media on child sex abuse, and four focus group discussions were conducted with children to understand children's perception on the media in relation to child sexual abuse.

The Hatemalo Sanchar has been publishing "Print media coverage on children's issues" since 2002, under its strategic programme of Media Monitoring. Till date, three reports have been published. This has drawn substantial attention of media houses, journalists, government bodies, stakeholders, civil societies and researchers on the pattern and trend of media coverage on child-related issues.
The main objective of publishing the report is to generate awareness about child rights and covering child-related issues by the media. It also intends to study and assess the media coverage on children's issues to stop the media-perpetrated violence against children and promote and ensure child rights through media. Its primary aim is to develop media as a child friendly means where children can have easy access to information so that they can express views and opinion for their overall development.
