The Emergence of Community Media in Cyprus

This report charts the growth of the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC) from an idea into a fully fledged organisation representing more than 40 civil society organisations in Cyprus, and providing them with the opportunity to carve out their own niche and an independent voice in the polarised media landscape by using new tools and methods to challenge the dominant narratives on the island.
