Abstract

In contemporary media-saturated societies, media exercise a considerable influence on every aspect of our lives. The issues that reach public consciousness become significant and consequently exhibit more potential to influence the public policymaking process. Advocacy journalism carries a great potential to advocate human development issues to policymakers. This chapter reviews the role of advocacy journalism in human development journalism practices in a developing country such as Pakistan. It is not a comprehensive survey of the factors associated with media coverage of human development issues; instead, it offers empirical insight into the role of media in human development.
