IJC campaign: For order and transparency in mass media

IJC campaign: For order and transparency in mass mediaCitizens have the right to know who owns media outlets, in order to be able to choose information consciously and not be manipulated by anonymous owners, who use the media for their personal interests – it is the message of the new video material launched by the Independent Journalism Center (IJC) to support the campaign aimed at improving the legal framework in terms of media ownership transparency.
The IJC had earlier sent for examination to the Parliament / parliamentary committee for culture, education, research, youth, sport and mass media a set of proposals to improve draft law no. 240 on modifying and supplementing the Broadcasting Code (adopted by the Parliament in the first reading on 21 July 2014) in terms of ensuring media ownership transparency. The proposals had been developed as a result of consultations and discussions at a round table organized by the IJC.


This video has been produced as part of the “Advocacy campaigns to ensure media ownership transparency, access to information, promotion of values and European integration” project, implemented by the Independent Journalism Center. Its production became possible due to the generous help of the American people through the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The opinions are those of the Independent Journalism Center and might not reflect the position of the USAID or of the US Government.
