The media landscape in Albania lacks independence. Many existing media outlets are owned and influenced by political figures and business men. As a consequence, journalists and editors are prone to censorship and self-censorship. With EED’s support, the Albanian Centre for Quality Journalism (ACQJ) is establishing a training programme to train journalists on ‘Mobile Journalism’which could be used as a mean to circumvent the rigid media market and the systematic censorship. The initiative will consist of training and capacity building of journalists in the field of Mobile Journalism, whereby commissioning, production and publication of multimedia news items is also envisaged.
