Civic Lenses is a project that combines research, media activities and activism, which are a basis for long-term observation of the situation of human rights and freedoms, and especially the exercise of power. This project has been encouraging and developing citizen journalism and freedom of expression for the third year.
The main aim of the Civic Lenses project is to contribute to transparent and accountable political processes, to strengthen public awareness on policies and practices related to human rights, the right to vote and the political processes, and to alert the domestic and international public on fraudulent practices in the electoral processes in general.
The purpose of the project is to identify and reveal cases of violation of voting rights, through an interactive and dynamic activity that will include human rights activists, the media and the general public, by collecting photo, video and written material, which will serve as a base for further observation, analysis and reporting on the election process.
CIVIL recently published the second publication “We Are The Media!”, which is an excellent resource for active citizens interested about citizen journalism.
The project is supported by the Foundation National Endowment for Democracy.
