SEENPM (South East European Network for Professionalization of the Media) is a network of 18 media centres and institutes across Central and South Eastern Europe. From Albania to Moldova and from Bulgaria to Slovenia, its members strive to protect and defend freedom of the Press and journalism professional standards.   SEENPM´s Vision is of a region where free, independent and professional media strengthens Freedom of Expression as a cornerstone of democracy in a united and diverse Europe. SEENPM believes that societies that don’t respect freedom of expression as a fundamental right and journalists as key stakeholders in exercising of this right are losing out on social, political, cultural and economic development. Since its foundation in 2000, SEENPM´s objective has been to provide media professionals and media outlets with tools to report on the new shape the region was taking. SEENPM also aims at creating an environment where freedom of the press is protected and promoted.
