Implementing European and International Standards on Media and Information Literacy in Bosnia

Media and information literacy (MIL) is a powerful and transformative resource, providing citizens with the skills and knowledge to understand, critically assess and conceptualise the complex media and digital ecosystem. In today’s digitalised world, these skills and knowledge are prerequisites for the full, unhindered and participatory exercise of human rights, in particular the right to freedom of expression.

This Study proposes potential paths for the establishment of a functional MIL infrastructure in BiH. The Study proposes a set of recommendations for (1) the MIL conceptual framework:educational, research and multistakeholder collaboration and regulatory functioning; and (2) governing models that ensure both policy and legal frameworks contribute to an enabling environment, consistent funding of MIL activities (stability and permanence) and collaboration with national and international actors (knowledge and cooperation).
