Supporting independent media

Description of the programme / policy

Via the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network(BIRN), Sida strengthens free and investigative media in the Western Balkan countries. Internews strengthens the ability of local media in Eastern Europe to conduct market and target group analyses, thus increasing their revenues. Sida also supports the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), a network of media organisations that conduct investigative journalism to highlight corruption and organised crime.
