  • The programme targets individuals that in different ways can promote standards and self-regulation of the media sector in the respective countries. The programme management will identify strategically important participants from the media sector, such as media councils, judicial institutions, independent freedom of speech organisations, policy institutions, relevant ministries, parliamentary committees and independent media outlets.
  • Despite the focus on individuals, the programme is primarily targeting organisations and efforts will be made to establish long-term relationships with the key organisations involved.
  • Such collaborative organisations should be willing to commit themselves to participation over several years and be ready to cooperate with other organisations in the programme, even though they may have different opinions on regulatory frameworks. Capacity and interest to drive processes to achieve long-term goals is a prerequisite to become a collaborative organisation.
  • Applicants to the programme should:
    • hold a key position in their organisation, with influence on a strategic level
    • have the engagement and power to initiate and drive change processes
    • have high proficiency in English
    • hold a relevant academic degree
    • be available and motivated for active participation through the whole training programme.
