Notes

The non­governmental organization Media Reforms Center is an educational platform, founded by Mohyla School of Journalism at National University of ‘Kyiv­Mohyla Academy’, which aims to implement high standards of journalism education in Ukraine, raise the level of media literacy, inform about the danger of propaganda and dissemination of fake information in the media. Since it was launched, MRC has been working on implementing western standards of journalism in Ukraine and raising the level of media literacy for different audiences, from students to journalists to members of the public who want to consume media content in a critical and responsible way. In order to achieve this, they conduct fact checking workshops for journalists and journalism lecturers from Ukrainian universities, and train students, bloggers and civil activists from different regions of Ukraine and other countries. We keep abreast of the latest media trends and contribute to international media research. Their experts participate in international conferences and forums and speak at major discussions on key issues facing contemporary media on a regular basis.

The flagship project of their organization “StopFake” is currently well known to media professionals all over the world. Not only does it identify cases of fake information about events in Ukraine, but also actually initiated an international discussion on how to resist this shameful phenomenon.
