The study “Freedom of the Media and the Safety of Journalists through the Prism of Media Legislation in Montenegro” is a baseline analysis of the laws relating to the media and/or journalists in Montenegro. The analysis is created in order to detect problems but also good practices that affect the freedom of the media and the safety of journalists in Montenegro. The subject of the analysis is seven media laws, two of which were amended during 2020 (Law on Media, Law on RTCG), while two are in the process of amendment (Law on Electronic Media and Law on Free Access to Information).
Study is part of the project “Improving the dialogue between journalists’ associations and parliaments in Western Balkans for stronger civil society sector”, which is financed by Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and Balkan Civil Society Development Network (BCSDN).
