BIRN BiH editor Denis Dzidic met 18 students and journalists from Denmark on November 12 and gave them a two-hour presentation on the organisation and the everyday work of its journalists.
Dzidic spoke about the experience and knowledge that BIRN BiH has gained so far, its transitional justice archive, and the challenges facing investigative reporting in general.
The journalists expressed particular interest in finding out about criminal cases in the fields of corruption, terrorism and organized crime, as well as the challenges associated with this type of investigative journalism in Bosnian society.
Dzidic also told the young journalists how local and regional media republish with BIRN BiH’s articles on a daily basis, pointing out that independent, professional and unbiased journalism is the only way to get such a good response and to gain the trust of counterparts at other publications.
BIRN BiH will continue to organize international training sessions for young journalists.
On November 17, it will present its work to participants in a study tour organized by the European Commission.
