The Media Development Center (MDC), un¬der the auspices of the USAID Programme for Strengthening Independent Media in the Republic of Macedonia and the USAID Pro¬ject for Media Legal Reform and Responsible Media, implements a continuous monitoring of the implementation of the new media legisla-tion in the Republic of Macedonia – the Law on Audio and Audiovisual Media Services (LAAMS) and the Law on Media (LM).
MDC simultaneously, in the context of the new laws, monitors the work of the Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS), the Macedonian Radio and Television (MRT) and the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia. The implementation of the legislation is monitored from the viewpoint of their influence on the functioning and opera¬tions of the media and journalists, i.e. the free¬dom of media and freedom of expression.
This report covers the period from the entry into force of the two laws, i.e. from January 3 to March 15, 2014.
