Info Reform fatigue, clientelistic pressures and disruption of the digital domain – main risks for media pluralism in North Macedonia
A new assessment of the risks for media pluralism in North Macedonia was published, which was conducted by the RESIS Institute as part of the Media Pluralism Monitor 2022 (MPM2022), a project coordinated by the Center for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom from Florence. The assessment that covers the year 2021 concludes the following: reform fatigue, clientelistic pressures from the political domain towards media (and vice versa) and party-political confrontations, coupled with structural pressures not exclusive to North Macedonia - such as the disinformation and misinformation flooding of the public sphere, exacerbated by health challenges concerning the COVID 19, have all partaken in the assessment that the media system in this country needs a new impetus for constructive change.

In addition, since social networks are the main source of information for most of the population, especially younger groups, people are greatly exposed to disinformation and hate speech.
