For this project, CMDS is developing and implementing a certificate-based course in digital media law for journalists, civil society advocates and lawyers in Central and Southeastern Europe. The course is designed as a ‘hybrid’-style' online and offline program that focuses on the fundamentals of media and freedom of expression law in the digital age. Successful participants will receive a professional certificate from the CEU School of Public Policy.
The project is led by Amy Brouillette, Director of the European Media Project at CMDS. Course developers and instructors include, Dean Starkman, a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative journalist, Gill Phillips, Director of Editorial Legal Services for The Guardian, Nani Jansen, Legal Director at Media Legal Defense Initiative, and Djordje Krivokapić, Legal and Policy Director of the SHARE Foundation.
This project draws on a partnership between CMDS, the OSCE Representative on the Freedom of Media, the OSCE Mission to Serbia, and the SHARE Foundation (Belgrade).
