Chapters in the book are: (1) Introduction; (2) Background Notes; (3) Mainstream vs. Separate Programming for Ethnic Minorities; (4) Coverage of Conflict and Ethnic Minorities; (5) Obtaining Information about Ethnic Groups and Conflict; (6) Recruitment and Training; (7) Enforcement Mechanisms; (8) Citizens' Groups as Broadcasters; (9) Who Will Pay, and at What Cost?; (10) Languages and Perceptions; and (11) An Afterword, or On to the 21st Century. The report of the Working Group of the Commission on Radio and Television Policy, a list of working group conference participants, the report of the Commission, and a list of commission members are attached.
