Danu Marin: Cultivating Information Resilience in Moldova’s Media Sector


In democratic societies, media are considered the fourth branch of power because they provide free, objective information on important matters in politics, society, and local communities for the public. They are not only an instrument of communication and information distribution, but also a mechanism that steers public discourse and oversees public life by holding officials accountable. Countries with weak democratic institutions, such as Moldova, must establish a healthy and independent media environment to prevent abuse of power, safeguard democratic principles and values, and build trust between citizens and government.
