Enhancing Professional and Accurate Media Reporting on the Electoral Process
In the framework of the reformed electoral process in Jordan and of the 2013 Parliamentarian elections, this project supports the capacity building of Jordanian media professionals and stakeholders (reporters, editors, managers and owners - from print, electronic and online media outlets) to report professionally, accurately and comprehensively throughout the electoral process.
This increased capacity will enable a free, objective and impartial access to information and reporting on elections. Ultimately, the public confidence and participation in the electoral and democratic process will be enhanced. The project involves working with a number of local, regional and international partners such as the Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ), Community Media Network in Jordan (CMN), the Jordan Media Institute (JMI) and Albany Associated Ltd.
to conduct a series of training workshops and to introduce a code of conduct for media coverage of elections.
