This background study was conducted in the framework of the project "Building trust in the media in Southeast Europe and Turkey, phase II" supported by UNESCO and the European Union and implemented by the Albanian Media Institute. The project, at this stage of implementation, aims to increase the skills of young people for media and information literacy (MIL) through the integration of the MIL curriculum in the formal education system in Albania. The implementation of the project started in June 2020 and will last until 2022.
