New Correspondents Boost BIRN Coverage of Serbia

Posted on

BIRN Serbia has recruited correspondents from Sandzak, southern Serbia, Vojvodina and Kosovo (covering the Serb community and other minorities) for its expanded news service on the new Balkan Insight website.

Amela Bajrovic, Nikola Lazic, Dragan Gmizic and Isak Vorgucic will strengthen BIRN’s network of contributors and give our readers a direct insight into the latest developments in these regions. Our new correspondents are trained and supported through the Minority Media Training and Reporting Project.

Since 2005 more than 50 journalists from Serbia have attended the training programme organized by BIRN Serbia, and sponsored by the British Embassy in Belgrade and the Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy. The project’s aim is to strengthen the capacity of local journalists and support their work.
