The project “Media and Public Credibility” was initiated with the goal of establishing transparency of media ownership, media financing and advertising in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The project is focused on preparing the legislative framework for the regulation of these fields that are of special importance for the freedom of expression, protection of journalists and prevention of pressures against media and journalists, motivated by political and financial reasons. Concurrently, the project relies on EU standards of transparency of media ownership and media pluralism, and the protection of the value of the journalism profession and its credibility in the public.

The project “Media and Public Credibility” is financed by the European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and its realization is conducted by  Consortium consisting of the Media Center Sarajevo Foundation, the Press Council in BiH, the JaBiHEU NGO and the BH Journalists Association.
