Regional Platform for Advocating Media Freedom and Journalists’ Safety is a network of journalist associations and media trade unions in Western Balkans countries established in January 2016 with the financial support of the European Union and within the EU Support to Regional Thematic Networks of Civil Society Organisations Program. A special purpose of the Regional Platform’s operation is the exchange of know-how, experience and information between 6 journalist associations and media trade unions, since they are recognized in their own communities as active and responsible defenders of journalists’ rights, which now can invest a part of their resources to meet regional needs and solve challenges the media community in the Western Balkans is facing. The principal project coordinator is the Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (Serbian abbreviation – NUNS).
