Media, Culture & Society -> Bosnia and Herzegovina
Media Initiatives launch two new projects
06.03.2017: Media Initiatives
Media Initiatives on March 1 started implementing two educational and informational projects.
Media, Culture & Society -> Southeast Europe
15.02.2017: Project Research team "Partnership in Southeast Europe for the Development of the Media"
The research aims to provide an up-to-date, comparative environmental analysis of the journalism education and the media literacy programs available in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. It provides information on the education needs in journalism profession and the general public as well as an overview of the environmental factors in the basis of the media literacy.

Media Literacy and Education needs of journalists and the public in Bosnia and Herzegovina
13.11.2016: Media Initiatives
465 future journalists and students who are supposed to become professional communicators enroll at faculties in BiH every year. About 30 to 70 percent graduate every year, which is around 200 students. According to Media Plan Institutes estimates, an equal number of students from other faculties decide to try their luck in journalism and PR, as a result of which there are around 400 people formally on the market every year who seek or can perform the work of professional communicators. We are using this term because faculty curricula, even if they are formally called just faculties of journalism, are actually communicology departments where students study various aspects of public and public opinion, sociological and marketing aspects, investigative procedures as well as journalism skills, which according to many opinions are the weakest segment of university education of journalists.
Media, Culture & Society -> Croatia
Journalists – writers in Croatia
15.03.2005: Goran Vezic
There are approximately twenty journalists in Croatia who have tried their skills in literature, many of them with great success, so that we can already regard this occurrence as an ongoing trend. The editor of publishing house “Profil” and one of the selectors of Zagreb Fair, Drago Glamuzina, confirms that this phenomenon has marked Croatian literature in recent years. “A large number of significant books were written exactly by renowned journalists, to whom, at the same time, goes much credit for a better treatment of literature by Croatian media”.
Media, Culture & Society -> Macedonia
The Big Brother of the Balkans
23.02.2005: Vesna Sopar
“Former Yugoslavian Republics Together Again”. This news would go well in the headlines of newspapers’ cover pages or prime-time TV newscasts. Rest assured, there’s no room for panic, because this is only a so-called international reality show broadcast by Macedonian television, which can also be followed by viewers in all former YU republics via satellite transmission. The team in the house is also a mixed one: it includes all former ‘nationalities and ethnic groups’. And that would be the entire story, nothing new and nothing unusual. However, when we take a deeper look, the matter proves to be far more serious than it seems.
Media, Culture & Society -> Bulgaria
Reality Show
26.01.2005: Alexander Boytchev
Whether cop, criminal, or suburban housewife, the possibility of being on camera is considered seductive because self-exhibition is a validation of existence. Some observers link the popularity of reality-based television to a spreading sense of powerlessness among the general public rather than voyeurism or exhibitionism. People do not want the old-fashioned kind of news because they know there is nothing they can do about it. But these new shows offer them the chance to get involved. They can call a number. They can make a difference. In other words, unlike more traditional news and public affairs programs, trash TV invites viewers themselves to actively intervene in limited ways.
Media, Culture & Society -> Bulgaria
07.09.2004: Alexander Boytchev
The Bulgarian viewer likes to watch TV. According to a survey made by the National Statistics Institute in Bulgaria (NSI), nearly one-half of all households in the country have cable television, or approximately three million people (delivered by over 800 service providers); the ownership of a TV set is about 93 percent. The variety of programs and broadcasts is a result of well-known and proven mechanisms and models from the West, with the slight difference being that they appear on air in Bulgaria a couple of years after the originals.
Media, Culture & Society -> Moldova
02.03.2004: Artur Corghencea
The most popular TV stations in Moldova are Russian ones. There are a few reasons for this - the older audience was accustomed to watching Moscow TV; almost everybody (including all minorities) speaks Russian, and it has more interesting programs than other TV stations. This situation given, it is obvious that no one would risk investing in opening a new Moldovan TV station. Unfortunately, it seems that the Moldovans' advantage of speaking two languages is going further to be a big disadvantage for the Moldovan media.
Media, Culture & Society -> Serbia
17.02.2004: Dubravka Valic Nedeljkovic
Investment in media in ethnic minority languages is, among other things, an investment in fulfilling commitments assumed by Serbia and Montenegro by signing and ratifying different international documents qualifying it as a democratic country and recommending it for membership in the EU.
Media, Culture & Society -> Slovenia
15.05.2003: Gojko Bervar
For more than thirty years, even from the times of mono-party system, Slovenian Muslims have been struggling for the construction of Islamic Religious Centre. Media have now detected the topicality of the issue and started with its intensive exploration.
