The media landscape is characterized by a chaotic mix of extremist media and counter narratives in media controlled by government actors, political groups or (inter) national militias. A new frontier is the digital sphere where democracy activists, NGOs and engaged citizens are actively tracked and attacked by security forces and extremist militias. The ability of citizens to discuss, engage in local politics and dialogue or participate in electoral processes is seriously hampered. In this media environment the first and foremost priority is to provide safety for journalists and media. Additional priorities are disclosing media-dark areas by providing alternative channels for information and supporting local initiatives for peaceful dialogue through the media. FPU also aims to increase the capacity of local actors to advocate for legal reform of the media landscape as well as provide tools and access to the open free and secure Internet.
