Serbia: Freedom of Media and Freedom of Expression

06.06.2023 18:30 CET R 219, VHS, Thon-Dittmer-Palais, Haidplatz 8 Discussion Public events Presentations

In 2023, Irene Khan, the Special Rapporteur of the UN Human Rights Council on the right to freedom of expression, stated that the state of affairs regarding media in Serbia is alarming, the situation being one of “toxic public discourse, from politicians or public officials and amplified by tabloids, scapegoating the media, human rights defenders, ethnic minorities, LGBTI and those critical of the government”. How does this situation influence the day-to-day work of a journalist at an independent news outlet? Is there space for action and change from the perspective of a socially engaged journalist interested in interreligious and intercultural dialogue? These are but a few topics Jelena Jorgačević-Kisić will address in her talk.

Moderation: Prof. Dr. Klaus Buchenau

Journalist Talks series is part of the seeFField project of the University of Regensburg, in cooperation with the Volkshochschule Regensburg and Leibniz Institute of East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) in Regensburg.
