This project draws together a team of media experts, policy researchers, market analysts and journalists to monitor and examine more closely the changes to Hungary’s media ownership landscape and media market since the 2010 laws were introduced. It is led by the Center for Media and Communication Studies (CMCS) at Central European University, in partnership with media-monitoring NGO, Standards Media Montor (Mérték Médiaelemző Műhely – MEM), and investigative reporting and pro-transparency NGO, Átlátszó.
