The MIL Assessment Framework can foster lifelong learning initiatives by building on the relationship between information, media, digital, and ICT literacies, along with societal transformations, education, workforce, policy and decision making processes, economic growth and democracy.


The overall goal of the publication is to guide UNESCO’s Member States throughout the assessment of country readiness and competencies regarding the media and information literacy of citizens, in particular teachers in service and in training.


The document is particularly aimed at the following stakeholders: policy makers and decision makers; national officers responsible for statistical data collection and analysis; educational policy makers and planners working in formal and informal education settings; teacher training institutions and teachers. It is also of relevance to the professional information and communication community, and has wide applicability for civil society at large.
