Workshop for journalists: Practical Skills for Recognising and Countering Disinformation

Reading time: 0 minute(s)

Prominent journalists and editors from several media outlets in the country are participating in a two-day workshop organized by MIM, in order to gain practical skills in identifying and tracking disinformation and their sources.


Sessions will provide participants with hands-on experience in identifying disinformation networks in the local media landscape, finding the original source of a claim, quote or a news story, identifying fake social media accounts, verifying video and image accuracy and reporting on disinformation without amplifying it.


The workshop is organized within the project “Promoting Media Information Literacy and strengthening independent media in the Western Balkans” implemented by Albany Associates from London, in partnership with regional media development organisations in Western Balkan countries.
