BIRN Regional Project on Openness Now Underway

Posted on

With the support of German Foreign Office Stability Pact funds, BIRN regional organisation has started the implementation of a nine-month regional project that aims to contribute to professionalizing media reporting on legal proceedings related to organized crime and corruption.

The new project, “Exercising the Freedom of Expression and Openness of State Institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Serbia” is intended to increase public awareness on issues of access to justice and contribute towards more transparent and more responsive institutions in these three countries.

The regional project will result in country-based and one cross-regional analysis, the first of its kind, offering a regional perspective on the accessibility of public institutions in the Western Balkan region.

The project will be implemented from April to December 2017 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Serbia.
