SR Media Development Office (SR MDO)

Supporting free and independent media with a passion for public service media!

Swedish Radio's Media Development Office (SR MDO) was established 1993 and is an independent department within Swedish Radio. SR MDO works with media projects aiming to strengthening the freedom of speech and democracy in the world.

We do that by providing support to free and independent media around the world and with a specific focus on what we do and know best: Public Service Media.

The work we undertake is financed exclusively through external funds, mainly from development cooperation agencies.

SR MDO draw on the expertise and knowledge of Swedish Public Service Media as a whole (including Swedish Radio, Swedish Television and the Educational Radio/TV). Working closely with partners, we contribute to enhancing professional capacities.

SR MDO’s specialty is institutional capacity development to strengthen PSM providers where capacity building in journalism and PSM values are the core.

Our services cover a broad range of support from strategic work and mentoring at management level to on-the-job-training at operational level, always in the service of the public.

SR MDO works through custom designed projects, planned and conducted in close collegial collaboration with each partner.

By jointly identifying and tackling problems, solutions are more likely to be successfully implemented to the specific contexts

We also support partners in developing initiatives and tools in the area of Media and Information Literacy.
