LThe phenomenon of disinformation, which was already considered endemic throughout the Western Balkans, has significantly gained pace in recent years, largely as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and Russia's invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

Balkan Voices 2 helps young people in the Balkans to express themselves in the media by strengthening media literacy among young people. This project also trains future journalists to fight disinformation and deal with common regional issues. It builds on the achievements of the Balkan Voices  project to encourage the participation of high school students and journalism students in an informed and inclusive regional dialogue.
