Media in Libya

About the project

The project Media in Libya – Immune against disinformation focuses on supporting the Libyan people’s right to access free and accurate information, and the role of free and independent media in promoting Libya’s transformation process. We strongly believe that a well-functioning media sector, quality journalism and well-informed citizens are essential for sustainable political, social and economic development. We include all social groups and place a special emphasis on ethnic minorities, women and young people.
