EU WESTERN BALKAN MEDIA DAYS 2019
11 September 2019 - 13 September 2019
Launched in 2017 by the European Commission, the EU – Western Balkans Media Days aim to ensure that media freedom remains a priority while tackling the complexity of pressing political, economic and social issues the region experience at present. Moreover, the forum has reached out to the professional challenges of journalists and media: their need to adapt to a rapidly changing media environment. The conference aims at having result-oriented discussions that could afterwards be reflected in adjusted assistance approaches to media related issues within the European enlargement policy.
This year’s edition intends to take stock of what has been achieved since the first edition, including a launch of some new EU funded initiatives. Business models, regional cooperation but also challenges caused by the increasing manipulation of the information space, will also be discussed during the event. For the first time, the EU Western Balkans Media Days, will also involve political representatives in the region directly in charge of information and media for a “Policy meets media” discussion.
