Working Conditions for Journalists in Bosnia and Herzegovina
JOURNALISTS IN A GAP BETWEEN DEVASTATED MEDIA AND LEGAL INSECURITY
17.03.2015: Radenko Udovicic


 



The Media Initiatives organization from Sarajevo, carried out a survey on working conditions for journalists in the period of July – August 2014 as part of the regional project “South-East European Partnership for Media Development Project”, implemented in collaboration with the “Mediacentar” Foundation. This topic is deeply interwoven with a number of current economic, media and political problems in BiH and the following report is a testimony to a socially turbulent period where media and journalists are struggling to survive – both in en ethical (professional) and economic sense. It will be shown, and this is not a  characteristic of only countries in transition, that these two elements are mutually dependent to large extent.  

The objective of the survey is to provide an overview of the working conditions for journalists in BiH, indicate what media professionals consider the biggest problems in this regard and identify possible solutions. Semi-structured interviews and analysis of documents, primarily laws, earlier reports on the media situation and to lesser extent media content, were used in the survey. Twenty-two interviews were made with journalists, editors, directors, media owners, representatives of journalist associations and trade unions, as well as courts.
