Young Lgbt+ persons from Vranje and Strumica Darija and Nikola are related by the same problems they faced during their schooltime. They reluctantly remember their primary and secondary school, where they were target of verbal, but also of physical attacks on almost daily basis, and the teachers, who were supposed to protect them, mainly ignored the violence, thus giving it a kind of legitimacy
Digitalization has accelerated the development of the media. Everything has changed except for the need for professional journalism and a well-written text. Also, what remains constant is the audience, whose loyalty always rewards the good player with applause. But how good are we at listening to those applauses?! What exactly does the audience “say”?! How to win the “applause”? What needs to be understood
It all started from the fear that young girl Anđela, who lives with her mother at the edge of existence in a mountain village in the South of Serbia, will not have food during the curfew. Tamara Misirlić, a student in the final year of secondary school from Vranje, allocated a part of her scholarship, bought groceries and travelled 50 km to deliver them
It’s Saturday. G., a student of Maths at the University of Prishtina, is in front of the laptop, trying to focus on the professor’s explanation about descriptive geometry. A difficult subject and it’s all with drawings. She’s trying to concentrate maximally, when at that moment the doorbell rings and the guests enter the house. She gets up, greets the guests, while the lecture continues…The
Running a media organisation in the Western Balkans (WB) is far from easy. A region beset by instability, corruption with challenges to media freedom which provide a fertile space for disinformation and biased reporting. Thomson Foundation is working to support media in the region and its recent programmes have made significant progress in creating stronger more financially resilient organisations through increased digital presence, audience
Young people in the Western Balkans face hardship understanding their realities and knowing one another due to overwhelming ongoing historical disputes, different perceptions of the recent past, and of social and political issues that make up their lives.  Experts in Serbia, Albania, and Montenegro see poor education, prejudices, and the narratives that come from political leaders as main contributing factors in the rise of
For almost two years, I had the opportunity to work with the media and mentors through the Media for All project. Initially, I developed an online course that dealt with the development of  business model for the media, and then I worked as a mentor with several media. I learned a lot during this process and had the opportunity to take a deeper look
The lives of the young actors and actresses during the pandemic “When you realize that you’ve been working for six years and you have good references, but contributions to your pension or health plan have never been paid for your work, you realise that what you read in the media is absurd. If you told this to someone who works in the field of
Climate change, abuse of green energy practices, as well as earnings of powerful investors from various projects that are detrimental to nature – in addition to allegations of the government turning a blind eye  – have had a particularly harmful effect on the environment in Serbia. Farmers are losing the rivers that have enabled them to live life in the countryside, and their survival
The global Covid-19 pandemic has made media outlets around the world scrambling in order to produce explanatory stories which help the audiences understand the pandemic, its causes and effects – for example, how the virus spreads and what measures we can all take in order to minimise it. Of course, the journalistic core value of accuracy, along with the journalistic process of verification, are
During the past decade, unemployment among youth in the Western Balkans has been a persistent issue. Young people from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo are leaving the Balkans massively in search of better job opportunities and a chance for a higher quality of life.  “Although there is unemployment in Kosovo, I think that doctors, lawyers, architects would not be left without a job.
According to the International Labour Organisation, Covid-19 impacted Balkan young people disproportionately, causing unemployment, poor education, and mental health issues that may last beyond the pandemic.
