SR Media Development Office (SR MDO)

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

SR MDO works on behalf of Swedish Radio with international media development. We draw on the expertise and knowledge of Swedish Public service media as a whole (including Swedish Radio, Swedish Television and Educational Radio and Television). Our aim is to strengthen democracy 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.

Working closely with partners in low and middle income countries, we contribute to enhancing professional capacities. Our services cover a broad range of support to organisational development, from strategic work and mentoring at management level to on-the-job-training at operational level, always in the service of the public.

We also support partners in developing initiatives and tools in the area of Media and Information Literacy. The work we undertake is financed exclusively through external funds, mainly from development cooperation agencies.
