NED and OSCE support for BIRN BiH

Posted on

The National Endowment for Democracy, NED, and the OSCE Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina will support BIRN’s Radio Justice Project.

Radio Justice started daily broadcasts on August 11, 2008. Twice a day, radio and some television stations around the country transmit our audio reports, produced by BIRN – Justice Report staff. Reports can also be downloaded from our web site, in the Radio Justice section.

This project will expand BIRN BiH’s presence in the broadcast media around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Previously BIRN BiH’s project consisted of brief written reports covering trials in the front of the War Crimes Chamber at the State court. Reports are transmitted daily to newspapers around the country.
In 2007, the National Endowment for Democracy supported BIRN’s Justice Report publication. The OSCE Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina gave support for the creation of the pilot programmes for the Radio Justice at the beginning of 2008.
