In order to better understand everyday struggles and pressures that journalists face in their local communities, and, thus, national trends and themes regarding censorship and the corruption of the journalistic process, Balkan Diskurs, Post-Conflict Research Center and its partners implemented a country-wide research initiative in 17 Bosnian communities and met with representatives from different local media houses, multimedia outlets, and portals, as well as independent journalists and reporters.

This project was funded by the European Union through the small grants programme “Protecting Media Freedom and Freedom of Expression in the Western Balkans” implemented by the Croatian Journalists’ Association as part of the regional project Western Balkan’s Regional Platform for Advocating Media Freedom and Journalists’ Safety, carried out through partnership of six regional journalists’ associations – Independent Journalists’ Association of Serbia (IJAS), Association of BH Journalists (BHJ), Croatian Journalists’ Association (CJA), Association of Journalists of Kosovo (AJK), Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM) and the Trade Union of Media of Montenegro (TUMM).
