The project aims to provide systemic support to improve the quality and professionalism of journalism in the Western Balkans and Türkiye. It is based on a successful model established by BIRN and its partners over the past four years, which enables journalists to produce relevant, high-quality content independently, broadening citizens’ perspectives on issues of public importance and increasing trust in the media. The project includes capacity building for mid-career and young journalists, ensuring quality in journalism study programs, supporting the production of quality news, TV and cross-border investigation stories, providing investigative resource desk support, and promoting these stories through awards. Additionally, the project aims to ensure that the quality of journalism study programs is maintained for future generations.
