Media Monitoring Ownership Turkey (MOM TURKEY)

Media Monitoring Ownership Turkey (MOM TURKEY)

The “Media Ownership Monitor” (MOM) has been developed as a mapping tool in order to create a publicly available, continuously updated database that lists owners of all relevant mass media outlets (press, radio, television sectors and online media).

MOM aims to shed light on the risks to media pluralism caused by media ownership concentration (for more information: Methodology). In order to grasp the national characteristics and detect risk-enhancing or risk-reducing factors for media concentration, MOM also qualitatively assesses the market conditions and legal environment.

Since 2015, MOM has been incubated by Reporter ohne Grenzen e. V. – the German section of the international human rights organization Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières, RSF), which aims to defend freedom of the press and the right to inform and be informed anywhere in the world.

In 2019, the project was spun-off to the Global Media Registry (GMR), an independent, non-for profit social enterprise registered under German law.

The MOM is globally implemented and published with a local partner organization in each country, in the case of Turkey the bianet/IPS Communication Foundation.

Originally funded by the Federal German Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ), the MOM Turkey 2020 updates were co-funded by the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
