The Project has a 3-stage structure corresponding to the period before, during and after elections. Major activities are the following:     

  1. Develop, in a participatory way, a strategy to support the Jordanian media community -including online media- in understanding its essential role in an electoral process;
  2. Train media professionals at all levels on reporting accurately, professionally and independently on elections as per international best-practices, including specialized sessions on investigative reporting, and gender-sensitive reporting during elections;
  3. Provide in-house support to 15 pilot media entities (media outlets, media associations or local media centres) to improve the quality of the election reporting - e.g. through newsroom-based media self-regulation, piloting crowd-source-based investigative reporting on elections, and supporting community-based entities in implementing online mechanisms to enhance election reporting.
