"In the context of the undergoing constitutional process in Iraq, UNESCO launches a new website dedicated to the media and human rights. It offers relevant and easily accessible information and key publications on these issues.
"2005/2006 is a key period for development and democratization in Iraq, framed by the elections that took place in January 2005 and the target to adopt a new Constitution by the end of this year. The constitutional process requires professional independent media that can provide reliable and credible information as well as a platform for debate and dialogue. UNESCO has developed various programmes that seek to strengthen human rights and democracy by building local capacities. "
