Media Pluralism Monitor is a unique tool for assessing risks for media pluralism in EU member states and selected candidate countries. Since 2013, the project has been financed by the European Commission and coordinated by the Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom of the European University Institute in Florence. Since 2015, IRMO has been participating in project implementation under the leadership by Paško Bilić, PhD. In 2022, the project was implemented in 32 countries and risk assessment analyses relate to 2021. The results for Croatia show medium risk in all analysed areas. In the field of basic protection (43 %) problems related to protecting the journalistic profession occur, due to excessive number of lawsuits addressed to journalists. The market plurality (65 %) is distorted by online platforms, news media concentration, and commercial influence over editorial content. The political independence (63%) reflects the lack of independence of public service media as well as the editorial autonomy of the media. Social inclusion (62 %) is insufficient regarding gender equality, representation of minorities in the media, and media literacy development.
