BIRN Launches Gazeta Jeta ne Kosove

Posted on

Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN, launched its latest media platform in Kosovo, Gazeta Jeta ne Kosove, a magazine-style website offering hard-hitting investigations, top quality analysis and striking editorials in Albanian.

Building on the success of Jeta ne Kosove, the country’s most watched current affairs, and its award-winning English-language newspaper, Prishtina Insight, BIRN Kosovo has today unveiled a new website combining the two at

The website will offer the kind of in-depth reporting not found in any other daily newspapers in Kosovo.

Editor Lawrence Marzouk said: “We want to spend more time on certain issues, looking at them in detail and with a critical eye as so much journalism these days is about rewriting press releases, attending events and following what other journalists have written.

“This website is different – it is about looking beyond the headlines and reading in between the lines.

Managing editor Artan Mustafa said: “We are a not for profit organisation, so we exist to do quality, impartial journalism, and not to make a profit for our owners or to influence the public in any political direction.”
