CEDEM has published an Analytical Report on Media Reporting in the Field of Criminal Justice in Montenegro.
The analytical report was created as a need to review the media normative and institutional framework, with special emphasis on self-regulatory bodies and the Code of Ethics. The analytical report was prepared in cooperation with prof. Dr. Anetom Spaić.
The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the media environment, with the identification of media companies, legal legislation and codes of conduct. The report assesses the quality of media reports on crime, especially corruption and organized crime, in relation to the Code of Ethics in Montenegro. In order to better understand the violation of the principles of the Code of Ethics, but also the comparative analysis of self-regulatory bodies of media reports, the Report includes an analysis of each individual self-regulatory body with cases complained about or analyzed on its own initiative by the self-regulatory body. All analyzed cases are included in the appendix to this analysis.
The last part of the analysis states the key findings and recommendations on media employees and management in media companies, in order to improve the media environment.
The analytical report is part of the project “Strengthening the role of the media in improving criminal justice in Montenegro” which is implemented with the financial support of the European Union under the program Professionalization of the media, in cooperation with TV PRVA.
