Mass Media of Central Asia in 21st Century

2019 - October

The media in Central Asian countries began its development after gaining sovereignty after the collapse of the USSR. In this process, each country has been practicing its own path with both positive and negative news. They have one thing in common: in all states the media has two positions both with, state newspapers, radio, television, news agencies, and non-state mass media. The difference is that in one country these positions are somehow opposed to each other, and in another country they are almost leveled in one line without confrontation.

This paper presents the progress of mass media in the perspective of each of the five countries of the region with an indication of their distinctive sides. Recommendations on reforming the mass media system is mentioned too.
