The Media Literacy Index Presented at OSCE


The Media Literacy Index of OSIS was presented by Marin Lessenski at the Media Freedom Literacy Roundtable organized by Office of the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, which took place on 6 December 2022 in Vienna.

The goal of the roundtable was to explore the intrinsic connection between media freedom and media literacy, using a cross-sectoral, human rights-based approach. It offered a multi-stakeholder platform for international exchange and policy learning in the area of media and digital information literacy. More specifically, the Round Table sought to create synergies among key international media literacy actors, identify the existing gaps and showcase successful fact-checking and other relevant platforms and methods, as well as policy making initiatives.

The discussions focused on how to develop meaningful response to information disorders that are here to stay and to help societies critically access, use information and participate in democratic debates. The event also discussed the role of public service media in advancing media literacy by delivering quality content to various segments in the society including marginalized voices.

The roundtable, opened by Teresa Ribeiro, OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, brought together policy makers, experts and practitioners from across Europe and Central Asia among the 57 OSCE member states.
