"A roundtable discussion to examine lessons learned by the media development community in Europe and Eurasia, focusing mainly on Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, and Ukraine. The event is being held on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the IREX Media Sustainability Index (MSI) for Europe and Eurasia, which analyzes the strength and viability of the independent media sector in 21 countries. The panelists will explore progress and decline in the media landscape in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, and Ukraine, among other countries in the region, after major political, social, and economic transformation. What challenges in independent media continue to exist, and what threats are on the horizon? What impact has media assistance had on the sustainability of independent journalism? How can local civil society organizations, donors, implementers, and policymakers apply the experiences and lessons learned from Europe and Eurasia to countries undergoing transitions in other regions"
