AEJMC’s South Asia Initiative:
With over one-fourth of the world’s population, South Asia has emerged as an important region for media and journalism, politics, international relations, health communication, culture, media and other areas that enrich the repertoire of our field. The South Asia Initiative brings together people with interest and expertise in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and the South Asian diaspora worldwide. The AEJMC South Asia Initiative, which currently constitutes 520 members worldwide, was instituted at the AEJMC 2015 conference in San Francisco.
