The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA)’s monitoring of Freedom of Expression (FoE) and safety of journalists’ in Mali (May – June, 2013) has shown a significant progress following the negative impact of the year-long crisis. This is the first of a series of monitoring reports to be issued within the year.
The monitoring exercise forms part of a project being implemented by the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), the Copenhagen-based International Media Support (IMS) and Dakar-based Panos Institute West Africa (PIWA). The objective of the project is to strengthen the territorial integrity of Mali through bridging a content divide between the North and South, and by building capacity of journalists in conflict sensitive journalism and ethical content production and sharing.
