On April 9, 2012, 10 am, the Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) and the Arab Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI), hold the “Media Coverage Monitoring and Assessment during the Transitional Phase” workshop, in Safir Hotel, Dokki, Giza.

The workshop comes in the framework of “Media Observation during the Democratic Transformation Phase in Egypt” project. The workshop covers the roles of the Supreme Council for Armed Forces, Judiciary and Political Parties, during the parliamentary electoral process in Egypt.

The project has issued the six monthly reports and final report on observing the media coverage of the political affairs in the last seven months. The reports included qualitative and quantitative analysis of a sample of media channels including Al Ahram, Al Akhbar, Al Masry Al Youm, Al Shorouk and Al Wafd newspapers in addition to Al Youm Al Sabea, Masrawy, Al badel and Al Ahram Gate websites

The workshop is aimed at discussing and recognizing the negative sides of the media coverage during the democratic transformation era, in attendance of journalists and media specialists, in order to enhance the Egyptian media performance. Media plays an important role in urging the public to effective political participation, instead of keeping the Egyptian silent majority, even after the revolution.
