The Institute for Media and Society is an independent, non-governmental organization based in Nigeria. The institute was established in April 2000.
In establishing the organization, we considered and were convinced of such issues as:
the inter-relationship between the well-being of a society and its media as well as between the state of the media and the responsiveness and growth of societal institutions.
the institutionalization of democracy and development in Nigeria being nourished by a free and pluralistic media structure, culture and environment.
