Media Watch is a section of our website that will focus especially on news, events, and materials related to freedom of expression and any other relevant developments in the media. This will serve as a monitoring and reporting system of all cases of violation of freedom of expression in Albania to the international organizations of the freedom of expression, such as IFEX, Article 19, Committee to Protect Journalists, Council of Europe, OSCE, IFJ, WAN, EJTA, UNESCO, etc.  Similarly, the reports will be sent to regional media organizations, such as South East Europe Media Organization (SEEMO) and South East Network for Professionalization of the Media (SEENPM.) 

Media Watch will include alerts and statements on the cases of violation of freedom of expression (violence, physical pressure, lawsuits against journalists, etc.) In addition, this component will also involve drafting of briefing papers on some of the main issues related to freedom of expression, such as legislation interventions on defamation, access to information, and audiovisual policies, new media and freedom of expression, media transparency, and other pressing issues. Finally, international or national reports on freedom of expression in Albania, recent related research on media and ongoing media debates will also be part of the Media Watch. Media Watch is carried out with the kind support of European Union
