Balkan Insight Expands Its Subscriber Base

Balkan Insight attracted Premium Content subscriptions from 75 institutions and 225 individuals in 2012, increasing its institutional subcriber base by 150 per cent.

A portal offering in-depth analysis, investigative reports, commentaries and interviews, the Premium Content section of Balkan Insight offers readers exclusive and independent information on a range of important issues affecting the region.

This section was restricted to subscribers in 2008 and marketed as BIRN’s primary commercial product in an effort to cover production costs and help provide self-sustainability.

Our subscriber base has also expanded to Australia, and subscribers now include the University of Melbourne as well as the University of Michigan in the United States, the Council of the European Union and the US State Department.

Access: Balkan Insight Premium, Facebook, Twitter
