Strengthening the Role of Media

 In cooperation with Albanian Media Institute, UNDP and UNFPA provided training in gender and journalism ethics for 60 journalists and editors from local media, presenting an overview of Albanian legal framework on gender and professional and ethical standards in journalism.

In addition, the UN Press Club received briefi ngs on the antidiscrimination law and completed a three day training ‘Ethics and Investigative Journalism’ at Inter Press Services in Rome. Topics covered included: the principles of investigative journalism; development journalism: reporting on child rights; gender equality issues; the promotion of good governance and minimizing corruption. UNDP also organized five media policy fora, which allowed more than 150 journalists, editors, policy makers, university lecturers and journalism students to discuss various media policies and other topics, including social media, digitalization, e Communications, media literacy and the role of media in the European integration process in Albania.

UNICEF provided capacity development support to young reporters, focusing on improving reporting, writing and television production skills, as well as providing young reporters with a foundation on ethics and human rights. Young reporters continued to be given a voice in Troç (Straight Talk), a weekly television programme aired on Albanian national television channel TVSH. Stories covered in 2010 included Youth Parliament, sports heroes, drug use, family problems and the future of Albania, from the particular perspective of young reporters.
