Media Pluralism Monitor is a unique tool for assessing risks for media pluralism in EU member states and selected candidate countries. Since 2013, the European Commission has financed the project coordinated by the Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom of the European University Institute in Florence. IRMO has participated in project implementation since 2015 and was led by Paško Bilić, PhD. In 2023, the project was implemented in 32 countries with risk assessments relating to 2022. The results for Croatia show a medium risk in all analysed domains. Fundamental protection (47%) shows problems in protecting the journalistic profession, primarily due to the excessive number of lawsuits directed at journalists. The market plurality (66%) shows high risks to pluralism in digital markets. Political independence (57%) reflects the media’s lack of independence and editorial autonomy. Social inclusiveness (59%) is insufficiently supported through the representation of minorities in the media and the development of media literacy.
