Portal Fairpress.eu

Portal Fairpress.eu has been created as part of a regional project Civil Response to Clientelism in Media – MEDIA CIRCLE financed by European IPA CSF programme. Lead in the project is Partnership for Social Development from Zagreb and partners from five countries of Southeastern Europe are: Expert Forum (RO), Vesta (BiH), Association of BH Journalists (BiH), Public Policy Institute (CG), Association for research, communications and development “Public” (MK), YUCOM Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights (SRB), Independent Journalists’ of Vojvodina (SRB). The goal of the project is to establish independent sustainable multilayered cross country Mechanisms for Active Media Policy Monitoring, Advocacy and Emergency response in SE Europe. The portal was publicly introduced on July 8, 2014. Besides the Croatian version, the Fairpress portal has also an English version and 5 other national languages of Southeastern Europe (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Romania).

Fairpress.eu is a unique and currently the only portal in Croatia, countries in the vicinity and EU member countries that deals exclusively and systematically with questions of media freedom, pluralism in media, media ethics and integrity and transparency of publishers. The goal and purpose of Fairpress is to improve the active and professional coverage of media issues of public interest. By reporting on events in media, such as ownership and financial relations between the public sector and media and the influence of those relations on editorial media politics and the information published by the media, portal ensures the distance that the reader must have towards media content that can be categorized as concealed political and interest advertising.

Concurrently, using analytical and precise track of the development of media politics, i.e., legislative and regulative framework, that directly affects or could indirectly affect media operations, Fairpress gives the public surveillance over the attempts of non-transparent influence of some publishers, politics or financial moguls over the media scene in Croatia and wider.
