EU4 INDEPENDENT MEDIA

Project Description
Surviving independent media in the Eastern Partnership struggle with unfair competition practices starving outlets of revenue, with political interference and general lack of management skills. To contribute to democratisation and empower citizens in the Eastern Partnership, the project aims to raise the abundance of quality journalism in the independent media sector from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. EU4IM encourages fact based, gender inclusive and reliable public interest journalism exerting its watchdog role. It contributes to boosting the resilience of the media by strengthening its financial sustainability. Our approach is if independent media journalists have the capacity to produce high quality, engaging content, then they will be more competitive in the media market, which will lead to bigger consumption of reliable information and, by extension, greater societal resilience and government accountability. The programme’s activities include online and face-to-face trainings, on-the-job and individual mentoring to improve editorial content or enhance management and marketing skills, as well as develop new revenue streams, an increased understanding of audiences, and support necessary technological investments. Furthermore, content production and emergency support, peer-to-peer networking are also offered together with access to research studies and reports on media development activities relevant to the region’s stakeholders.
Specific Objective
