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 public who want to consume media content in a critical and responsible way. In order to achieve this, we 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. Our experts participate in international conferences and forums and speak at major discussions on key issues facing contemporary media on a regular basis.
