Summary of the project
The project aims to address the challenges in the media sector of Kosovo, as highlighted by reports from the EU and Freedom House. The current media environment in Kosovo is characterized by political pressure, intimidation of journalists, and biased reporting that fuels divisions. Additionally, minority media in the Serbian language face obstacles in maintaining independence and competitiveness. The project aims to strengthen independent media and media literacy by promoting ethical journalism, supporting Serbian-language media, enhancing media literacy skills, and fostering critical thinking among young people. Ultimately, the project seeks to contribute to a more informed and democratic society in Kosovo.
The goal of the project is strengthening credible sources of information through increased audience and citizen engagement (participatory journalism) in combating fake news and disinformation within the Serbian community in Kosovo.
