UNESCO has a long history of support for media education, as part of its broader remit in the field of information and communication. Most recently, there have been moves to develop a range of new initiatives in the field of 'youth media education', including publications, expert meetings and policy debates. One early initiative here was the commissioning of an international survey, undertaken by the authors, to assess the scale and reach of media education around the world. This was by no means an extensive or comprehensive survey, although the responses we received do provide a telling indication of the current state of the field, and throw up some broader issues for debate. This article presents a summary of the some of the key findings.
