Connecting government, media, and civil society to identify policy avenues toward a more transparent and accountable media ecosystem in Moldova
Please join Internews, Freedom House, and the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation for the second annual Media Policy Forum in Chisinau. The Forum will address challenges and regional trends in Europe and Eurasia facing freedom of expression during elections, with particular attention to digital media, objective coverage, and journalists’ rights and freedoms. During the discussion, we will aim to identify policy solutions that maintain respect for international standards on free expression with attention to key issues around elections, including defending digital space, fostering fair elections coverage, countering disinformation, and promoting free speech. The Forum will convene a wide array of experts from civil society, independent media, government, academia, and the international donor community.
