Description/Mission statement:
AsiaMedia is a daily electronic publication that delivers news about all aspects of the media in Asia, including its role in regional and national economies, societies, and political debate. In addition, AsiaMedia publishes commentary by a range of journalists, scholars, and policy makers.

AsiaMedia is not an institution. It is not a foundation. Rather, it is an intellectual exchange network headquartered at UCLA, with a geographical and intellectual reach extending from the West Coast of California to East Asia, South and Southeast Asia, and on to Australia and the Pacific Islands.

AsiaMedia subscribes to no one nation, government or ideological view. It is a nonpartisan news network based on one critical belief: The East and West, joined by the media, can build mutual understanding which leads to solutions of shared problems. AsiaMedia is a publication that focuses sustained attention on the media's critical role, and thus the region's political and cultural life.
