The Media and Information Literacy: for Human Rights and More Democracy project will make a contribution to increasing media and information literacy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in line with Council of Europe and international standards, in particular in regard to the media literacy-related provisions of the Recommendation CM/Rec (2018)1 of the Committee of Ministers to member States on media pluralism and transparency of media ownership.
In more concrete terms, the project has two main objectives:

a) Strengthening knowledge, skills and capacities of the Communication Regulatory Agency to advance European standards for regulation, self-regulation and co-regulation aimed at improving the performance of and trust in the media, including as part of an overall policy and strategic framework for Media and Information Literacy in BiH.
b) Developing research and creating specific MIL content, aimed at enhancing the awareness of MIL stakeholders of the importance and complexity of MIL, in particular in the context of BiH.
