Our expert has worked as a media consultant in the framework of a project entitled “Study and Research on Election Media Coverage for 2018 Presidential Election in Georgia”, implemented by United Nations Development Programme Georgia (UNDP) and supported by the European Union. The main objective of the project was to promote a peaceful, free and credible media environment during the 2018 elections in the country. The project aims to provide an evidence-based assessment of media performance, contribute to the improvement of media reporting standards, and strengthen media monitoring capacities of Georgia civil society organizations.
The expert is supposed to ensure that local organizations implementing the project - Charter of Journalistic Ethics, Civil Development Institute (CDI) and Internews Georgia – will be able to analyze data, and write reports in full correspondence with recognized international standards and practices. In addition, he will also provide assistance in the preparation of the evidence-based assessment of media performance and the development of recommendations on the improvement of reporting standards. A two-day media monitoring workshop at the outset of the project took place in Kachreti, Georgia, on 15 - 17 May 2018.
