Media Clientelism Index (MCI) is the first cross country comparative and country specific reporting on the state of media clientelism and politicisation based on empirical data. Experimental research, i.e. ground zero measuring of the Index was conducted in six countries of South eastern Europe (Republic of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, FYR of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia and Romania).
The event is organised under the framework of Civil Response to Clientelism in Media – MEDIA CIRCLE project financed from the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance by the European Union (IPA) Civil Society Facility (CSF), implemented by Partnership for Social Development (Croatia) in cooperation with Expert Forum (Romania); BH journalists (an EFJ affiliate) and VESTA (Bosnia and Herzegovina); Public Policy Institute (Montenegro); Public – Association for research, communications and development (FYR of Macedonia); Independent Journalists’ Association of Vojvodina and The Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights (Serbia).
The project aims to establish independent sustainable multilayered cross country mechanisms for active media policy monitoring, advocacy and emergency response in SE Europe.
The working language of the conference is English. For more details about the event and confirmations please contact Ms. Ana Hećimović, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 003851/6055-668.
