Research on the digital media state of play and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – “New Media – Old Problems 2020”


    The report “New Media – Old Problems 2020” is a continuation of a three-year analysis of the digital media sector in Montenegro. In addition to the position of employees and the situation in digital media, this year we also have analysed the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the possible effects it could have on both the portals and their employees. The report presents the findings of desk research and surveys with owners and journalists employed in digital media. It is a continuation of the research conducted in 2018 and 2019, which was the first research in this area in Montenegro. The report summarizes the findings of a three-year research and monitoring of the situation in online media and offers recommendations for improving and resolving the identified problems.

    The document in front of you is part of the project “Union to Union – Recruitment and Organizing in CEE 2020”, which is traditionally implemented by the Trade Union of Media of Montenegro (the TUMM) with the support of the International Federation of Journalists (the IFJ) and the Swedish Union of Journalists.
