The Media Map project is excited to share our literature review focusing on the study of media development as a field.  The report explores the origins of media development research, outlines existing empirical measurements of the impact of media development projects, and examines relevant theories about the relationship between media modernization and societal progress.  In reviewing the literature, it lays the groundwork for The Media Map Project, a study on the impact of media development worldwide.
