The JUFREX project has organised on 5 April 2018 in Podgorica a Public presentation of the Media sector inquiry in Montenegro. The inquiry provides a comprehensive analysis of the media sector in Montenegro, including the assessment of impact and consequences of different regulative mechanisms currently in place. Existing and possible solutions were analysed for the (re)definition of responsibilities, rights, duties and competencies of all media actors, as well as other important stakeholders influencing the media sector in Montenegro. Event was attended and opened by Minister of Culture of Montenegro, Mr Bogdanovic.
During the event Lejla Dervišagić, Head of Cooperation Unit at the Media and Internet Division at the Council of Europe, in Strasbourg highlighted: "The inquiry was based on Council of Europe standards relating to freedom of expression and freedom of the media, as well as EU regulations. The aim of this inquiry is to offer a review of the legislative and institutional framework for media and freedom of expression in Montenegro, and to offer conclusions and recommendations that will serve as a guideline for further defining and implementation of national media policies." The event was attended by representatives of media, NGO sector and state institutions and it was followed by lively discussion.
