Staff and contributors from throughout the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network will meet from April 12 –15 in Belgrade.

They will take part in a panel discussion on April 12, tackling the issue of how countries of the Balkan region are managing to develop, set and promote their own foreign policy. This public event, which will include additional guest speakers, is to follow publication of a special edition of Balkan Insight addressing this topic.

Investigative journalism training for BIRN members will follow on April 13, continuing on April 14 with editorial planning and a review of ongoing projects initiated at the last meeting of the network in August 2006.

The board of the regional network will convene on April 15 to review institutional development issues and other outstanding business.
