Brussels, May 2018 – Media4Democracy and several EU Delegations are piloting three standardised “packages’ of technical assistance and a fellowship programme designed to enhance EUDs’ support for freedom of expression and media pluralism.

Leveraging the unique expertise of Media4Democracy consortium partners, each package targets core areas where EU Delegations can make strides, linked to:

  • Law and policy in support of freedom of expression
    • with Article19
  • Media and information access to empower women and girls
    • with Free Press Unlimited
  • Media institutions as drivers of democracy
    • With European Partnership for Democracy

The Media4Democracy fellowship, being piloted with the EU Delegation in Tanzania, focuses on building skills and abilities of the leaders of institutions that underpin media pluralism.

Packages will be customised to each Delegation context and priorities, and in June and July some will be piloted with EUDs in Africa.

Package are available to requesting Delegations, with services provided based on review by Media4Democracy and DEVCO and delivered in sequence based on capacity of Media4Democracy and its partners.
