Protecting freedom of expression is high on the agenda in Albania, as the country moves to align itself with European standards.

The European Commission’s 2023 Report on Albania, published in November 2023, found that Albania has a ‘moderate level of preparation in the area of freedom of expression’. In the area of digital transformation and media, ‘the country made good progress, including by joining the Digital Europe programme in June 2023’.

Over the past year, an action was formalised to enable public institutions and civil society organisations to progress towards achieving their reform agendas.

The action, titled Protecting freedom of expression and of the media in Albania, has been implemented within the joint programme of the European Union and the Council of Europe  

Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Türkiye running from 2023 to 2026.

It is intended to contribute to ‘an improved environment for the exercise, in particular by journalists and media actors, of their rights on freedom of expression, in a pluralistic and safer media environment’.

The action is expected to benefit the Audio-Visual Media Authority of Albania and its staff, as well as professionals such as judges, prosecutors, lawyers, journalists and broadcasters.
