Media and Child Laws.

Media and Child Laws.

Mass media is one of the important stake holders in the country and can play a vital role in child protection, prevention, and awareness on the importance of child rights. The role of media does not end here; it raises awareness, influences behaviour and generates public opinion. It also provides credible information, alerts citizens and stake holders and creates a demand for special support services. In short the Media acts a watchdog of the society at large. Media in Goa has worked intensively in curbing violation and keeping people upraised on various issues including child rights. The Government has been forced to take action on numerous issues only after the media came down heavily on the State. All stake holders should give three cheers to all media personnel working in Goa for their strength and commitment.
