Are journalists really able to deal with their work in the editorial office and how much their worker’s rights are respected? These were the initial questions of the research “Invisible Violence: Stories from the newsroom” carried out by the actors of the project with the same name. (NIIT, Kontrapress, CDT…)
The survey was conducted through interviews with journalists from Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo* and Macedonia.
Journalism combines personal interest, interest of the profession and general interest.
On the one hand, under open political pressures and threats, often called directly from the media conferences of leading people in the country, on the other hand, in the face of editorial controversy, certain journalists carry out a major part of their work under conditions of insecurity, discrimination, censure, and open pressures.
This is exactly the topic of the publications made within the project, which will be presented at a conference in Sarajevo from May 31 to June 2.
