WEB.DEP aimed to support the renewal of democracy in the Balkans, as the countries came out of a difficult period and began the process of joining the EU.

To support a culture of transparency and participation, WEB.DEP created online portals to enable sharing of news and public information. These portals also contained community forums, integrated with the news system and designed to support e-participation. The portals were hosted and managed by the Balkan (previously national) news agencies – Albanian Telegraphic Agency (ATA), Macedonian Information Agency (MIA) and National News Agency of the Republic of Serbia (Tanjug). There was also a central forum, in English, to facilitate regional interaction.
