REPORT THE MISSING LINK – CSO

Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) region are dealing with numerous challenges in their working environments. Due to the nature of their dayto-day work, and fast paced information society, one of the most significant challenges for CSOs are media relations. The Technical Assistance for Civil Society Organisations (TACSO) project is aware of the importance of encouraging members of the CSO community to develop their own links to the media; the project is continuously trying to widen its approach in assisting CSOs to get their message across to their publics. On the other hand, TACSO is also aware of the constraints the media have towards the CSOs and in turn TACSO has supported the media’s contact with CSOs.
