The two offices of the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network discussed topics for regional investigations related to transitional justice.
“Our future investigations need to tackle issues of transitional justice that will prompt debate in our societies,” said Gordana Igric, regional director of BIRN.
Igric added that a regional approach to these issues is crucial, as almost every story related to the conflict in the 1990s affects at least two countries in the former Yugoslavia.
The meeting was attended by: Marija Ristic, BTJ Serbian correspondent, Elvira Jukic, journalist, Erna Mackic, Editor in Chief BIRN BiH, Marija Tausan, BIRN Justice Report journalist and Editor, Albina Sorguc, Journalist, Amer Jahic, Journalist, Mirna Buljugic, BIRN Justice Report journalist, Dragana Erjavec, TV Justice journalist and Editor, Selma Ucanbarlic, Journalist/Court reporter, Melisa Bilalovic, Radio Justice Editor and Boris Pavelic, Balkan Transitional Justice Croatia Correspondent.
The investigations are part of BIRN’s Regional Reporting on Transitional Justice Issues programme. Over the next two years, the organisation’s network of journalists will produce four investigations on transitional justice issues in the region.
The topics for investigations will be finalised in January in Belgrade at a joint editorial meeting.
