This research analyzed the situation with international news reporting in mainstream Albanian media. Media studies and monitoring reports so far have focused broadly on other aspects, but when it comes to coverage of international affairs in the Albanian media, there is certainly a lack of such research work.
This study analyzes the space given to international affairs in Albanian media (from the quantitative point of view) and the main trends in content of such reporting. Which are the main international events reported and what is their ratio to local news? Which is the ratio between chronicles of international events and the opinions on such events? The study combined direct media monitoring, desktop research, as well as interviews with international news reporters. The publication was prepared by Albanian Media Institute, with the support of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.
