Research conducted by the University of Chile has revealed that the country has both direct and indirect restrictions on freedom of expression, and that it lacks a national monitoring system to evaluate these issues.

The project also provided some equipment. This project was carried out jointly with Radio Nederland, which provided some technical and financial support.

It should be pointed out that the concept of using the media as an educational tool has only recently been made possible in the wake of changes in Chile's political climate over the past decade.
