BIRN investigative reporters met for the first time this year to discuss story ideas and possible regional cooperation in the Serbian capital on October 29, 2012.

Balkan Insight’s Besar Likmeta of Albania, Elvira Jukic of Bosnia and Bojana Barlovac of Serbia, along with Belgrade Insight’s Gordana Andric, BIRN Serbia’s Aleksandar Djordjevic, and Semir Mujkic, an investigative journalist for the Bosnian Zurnal magazine, gathered in Belgrade and brainstormed ideas for regional cooperation on investigative pieces.

BIRN Regional Director Gordana Igric and Balkan Insight Managing Editor Ana Petruseva guided the journalists through different topic possibilities.

Investigations are an important part of BIRN’s publishing activities and the BIRN team is always preparing new stories.

Over the next year, BIRN journalists will work on several regional investigative projects that are relevant to the Balkans and beyond.
