Short presentation of the organization:
The Media Research Centre (MRC) is a non-profit organization promoting the role of the Media and Media Literacy in the transition to sustainable ways of living in a local community in Europe.
Our overall objective is empowerment and networking of CSO associations to participate and improve capacity to objective informing the citizens in a local community, and protection and promotion of human rights.
We believe that the freedom of expression as a fundamental human right and a core pillar of good governance and the rule of law; only media that are genuinely independent politically, editorially and economically can duly fulfill their key role in a democratic society: to be a watchdog over governments and businesses and inform their audiences about all important aspects of life impartially, reflecting a variety of views.
We are seeking for the partnership to strengthen freedom of expression and media freedom in South East Europe and promote media internal governance in a local community and foster media and information literacy (MIL) in the region.
