The OSCE’s Representative of Freedom of the Media is exploring the link between media freedom and media literacy with a view to presenting recommendations to the OSCE on how Media Freedom Literacy can be fostered.
For this project Media Freedom Literacy is understood to be the ability to understand and value the democratic functions of the media and other information providers, online and offline, and the importance of information pluralism. This includes critical evaluation and ethical production of information and media content.
Led by MLI member Martina Chapman, project researchers are exploring promising practices that promote Media Freedom Literacy. Specifically, they are seeking projects that help the public to:
- Understand and value the democratic functions of the media and other information providers
- Recognise the importance of information pluralism
- Critically evaluate content
- Recognise and value the ethical production of information and media content
