Brief Commentary on the Changes made on the New Mass Media Proclamation of Ethiopia

Mesenbet Assefa (Ph.D), Abel Gisila & Edom Getachew

The new Mass Media Proclamation 1238/2021 has introduced significant changes to the previous legal regime governing the media. The law has introduced commendable legal provisions that provide greater protection and space for media freedom as well as more flexibility with regard to investments in the media industry. In this brief commentary, we will provide the major changes made in the new Mass Media proclamation briefly.

1. Consolidating the Media Regulation The Mass Media Proclamation integrated two different areas of media regulation that were governed by two different legislations. Previously, access to information and the print media was regulated under Proclamation 590//2008, while the broadcast media was regulated under Proclamation 533/2007. The new Mass Media Proclamation repealed both proclamation 590/2008 and proclamation 533/2007, but in essence consolidated the regulation of the print and broadcast media in one single legislation.
