ERIS project in Macedonia to encourage balanced news reporting

April 2014

In February 2014 ERIS started a project in Macedonia to encourage balanced news reporting, targeting 6 independent media organisations and their journalists and media personnel. Our partners are Transparency International-Macedonia and the Slovakian media monitoring non-governmental organisation MEMO 98.

 

The project will include courses, roundtables and seminars for key figures from media organisations on good journalistic practice and investigative reporting in political coverage, political corruption, and social and economic coverage. International media experts will act as mentors and provide support to individual journalists/media personnel after the training.

Finally, interactive workshops and seminars will be held for civil society advocates and staff from government institutions with the aim of cultivating a spirit of cooperation and mutual understanding of media standards and good practice.
