EED’s support has allowed Sokol Shameti, a reputed intellectual and journalist in Tirana, to start a satirical website called Maçoku i Zi (The Black Cat), which publishes short satirical stories, op-eds, memes and cartoons, to encourage critical thinking in Albania’s public sphere. The initiative, which had been functioning as a social media page, was supported by EED in order to be established as a fully fledged online satirical magazine.
